1886 Robur-le-Conquérant
Year Language Title
1887Translated by an uncredited hand. This translation begins: "Bang! Bang!" The sound of two pistol shots was heard. A cow crossing a field fifty paces distant received a bullet in the spine. The cow was an innocent victim. Like spectators at a riot she had fared worse than the combatants. The contending adversaries were untouched.
English Robur the Conqueror; or, A Trip Round the World in a Flying Machine
1887Translated by an anonymous hand. This translation begins: "Bang! Bang!" The pistol-shots were almost simultaneous. A cow peacefully grazing fifty yards away received one of the bullets in her back. She had nothing to do with the quarrel all the same. Neither of the adversaries was hit.

Neither of the adversaries was hit.

1918Translated by an anonymous hand. This translation begins: ""Pang!...." "Pang!...." De twee pistoolschoten gingen als het ware tegelijkertijd af. Eene koe, die op een afstand van vijftig passen ongeveer rustig graasde, kreeg een der kogels in de bovenrugwervels. Toch, dat moet erkend worden, had zij aan het geheele geval hoegenaamd geen schuld. De onschuldigen boeten in den regel voor de schuldigen."

Een vreedzame koe, die op ongeveer vijftig pas afstand rustig graasde, kreeg één der kogels in een rugwervel. En toch moet gezegd worden, dat zij aan het gehele geval hoegenaamd geen schuld had. In de regel zijn het de onschuldigen die voor de schuldigen moeten boeten: geen der beide vechtenden was geraakt."
Dutch Robur de Veroveraar
1970Translated by Peter Laneus. This translation begins: "Piff! - Paff! Die beiden Pistolenschüsse gingen beinahe gleichzeitig los. Eine der Kugeln saß im Rückgrat der Kuh, die fünfzig Schritt entfernt vorbeitrottete. Nichtsdestoweniger hatte sie mit der Geschichte nichts zu tun. Die Gegner blieben aber beiden unversehrt. Wer waren die zwei Herren? Das weiß man nicht, obwohl hier fraglos die Gelegenheit gewesen wäre, ihre Namen der Nachwelt zu hinterlassen."
