and Fascinating Game with Plenty of Excitement on

Vibrant chromolithographed board game, celebrating American journalist Nellie
Bly’s 1889-1890 journey around the world. Inspired by Phileas Fogg, the hero of
Jules Verne’s 1873 novel
Around theWorld in Eighty Days
, Bly traveled alone from
Hoboken to London, made her way across Europe, Asia and the Pacific, and raced
back to NewYork via train to complete her circumnavigation in 72 days, a world
record. Players of the game follow Bly’s path around the world, eventually coming
to rest under the Statue of Liberty in NewYork Harbor. The corners of the board
feature four vignettes: Nellie Bly, “The ‘World’s’ Globe Circler;” Jules Verne,
with Phileas Fogg in retreat; a steamship, “Speeding Across the Atlantic;” and a
locomotive, “Over a Mile a Minute.” A near-fine example of a striking American
board game, rarely found complete with game pieces and instruction booklet.
