A NEW TALE
STRANGE THINGS OF THE SEA.
On the 2nd of the coming October, we will begin to publish a brand new story written by the famous French Novelist, Jules Verne, called—”Twenty-Thousand Leagues Under the Sea,” which tells of the strange scenes of peoples of the sea and shipwrecks, and so forth.
This story will be translated from French by the famous moolelo translator of Hawaii nei, and it will be written in language that will delight the Hawaiian people, and will be understood by the young and the old.
This is one of the most remarkable and true stories written, and over a hundred million copies were sold in France, England, and America. Therefore, those who have not subscribed before to the The Greatest Prize of the Hawaiian Nation should start, so they will be satisfied from beginning to end with the story.
[This was first published as a book in French just four years earlier in 1871 (and in English, in 1873)! This story appears as a serial in the Kuokoa from 12/18/1875 to 3/30/1878.]
[Follow up: George W. Kanuha is the translator of this classic! 2/19/2016]
