Dr. Ox's Experiment is the Towle translation and begins: "If you try to find, on any map of Flanders, ancient or modern, the small town of Quiquendone, probably you will not succeed. Is Quiquendone, then, one of those towns which have disappeared? No." Master Zacharius is the first Towle translation and begins: "The city of Geneva is situated at the western extremity of the lake to which it gives - or owes - its name. The Rhone, which crosses the city on emerging from the lake, divides it into two distinct quarters, and is itself divided, in the centre of the city, by an island rising between its two banks." A Drama in the Air is the Towle translation and begins: "In the month of September, 185—, I arrived at Frankfort-on-the-Maine. My passage through the principal German cities had been brilliantly marked by balloon ascents; but as yet no German had accompanied me in my car, and the fine experiments made at Paris by MM. Green, Eugene Godard, and Poitevin had not tempted the grave Teutons to essay aerial voyages." A Winter Amid the Ice is the Towle translation and begins: "The curé of the ancient church of Dunkirk rose at five o'clock on the 12th of May, 18—, to perform, according to his custom, low mass for the benefit of a few pious sinners. " The Fortieth French Ascent of Mont Blanc translation begins: "I arrived at Chamonix on the 18th of August, 1871, fully decided to make the ascent of Mont Blanc, cost what it might."
