The page number, p. 770, may be wrong even if everything else in the Google Books snippet is correct.

Subject: Another (Possible) Early Occurrence of the Term "Science Fiction"

I see a Google Books snippet that has the following text included: "The science fiction of Jules Verne, in which many of the heroes were Englishmen, reached English boys ..."

The snippet appears to be from volume 1 of the Medical Journal of Australia (1914), p. 770.  I have not attempted to verify that from the print.
