Plot Synopsis: 
(courtesy of D. Kytasaari - http://epguides.com/djk/JulesVerne/works.shtml)
Le Docteur Ox (Doctor Ox) 
Doctor Ox and his assistant Ygene come to the small quiet community of Quiquendone located in Flanders. He promises to light this town with a network of oxyhydric gas pipes. During the construction of this network, the quiet community becomes quite excitable, to the point where they are ready to go to war against a neighboring community. But what is the cause of this change in the nature of the good people of Quiquendone? Perhaps it is something in the air, but only Doctor Ox and his assistant Ygene know for sure.

Maître Zacharius ou l'horloger qui a perdu son âme (Master Zacharius or the Clockmaker Who Lost His Soul) 
As a clockmaker in Geneva, Switzerland begins dying, all of the time pieces that he has crafted begin failing as though a part of his soul became a part of each of them. Soon only one of his time pieces remains functional, and for the clockmaker to gain possession of it, he must give his daughter's hand in marriage to a man who works for the devil himself.
NOTE: This was originally written in 1854.

First US Edition
1874, August



Jules Verne Encyclopedia:
"Commencing on May 22, 1874, for about a month, James R Osgood announced in the New York Commercial Advertiser that Doctor Ox was "In Press," and on June 29, 1874, copyright registration was made, followed by deposit of two copies of the book on July 17. On August 1, 1874, notice appeared in the American Booksellers' Guide that Osgood had published a translation by George M Towle of five of Jules Verne's stories in one volume, with the title of Dr. Ox, and Other Stories. This is an 18mo. book in the Saunterer's Series, which typically has the title, a sketch of Verne's yacht St. Michel, and Verne's signature all embossed on the front cover in gilt."

This translation opens:
"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."

As such, it could still be considered a 1st edition, but it will have been "combined" later in 1874, and nearer to 1875. I suppose they created the new cover, and had left over printed stock!
