Dick Sand; or, a Captain at Fifteen by Jules Verne

[Redactor's Note: Dick Sand; or, a Captain at Fifteen, number V018 in the T&M listing of the works of Jules Verne, is a translation of _Un capitaine de quinze ans (1878)_. This translation was first published by George Munro (N.Y.) in 1878 and reprinted many times in the U.S. This is a different translation from that of Ellen E. Frewer who translated the book for Sampson and Low in London entitled _Dick Sands, the Boy Captain_. American translations were often free of the religious and colonial bias inserted by the English translators of Verne's works.]
