Description

Writing in France in the nineteenth century, Jules Verne was fascinated by adventure and exploration. Collecting "Five Weeks in a Balloon", "Around the World in Eighty Days", "A Journey to the Center of the Earth", "From the Earth to the Moon", "Round the Moon", "Twenty-Thousand Leagues Under the Sea" and "The Mysterious Island", this omnibus offers a unique compilation of seven of Verne's Voyages, stories in which he extrapolated developing technology and invention into marvellous fiction. This volume offers readers a generous introduction to Jules Verne, whose books are as alive today as they were for readers new to the ideas expressed in them during his time. This edition of the text is exquisitely bound in bonded-leather, with distinctive gilt edging and an attractive silk-ribbon bookmark. Decorative, durable, and collectable, these books offer hours of pleasure to readers young and old and are an indispensable cornerstone for any home library.show more

Back cover copy

The French novelist Jules Verne is acclaimed as the father of science fiction and as 'the man who invented the future.' Far ahead of their time, his novels and stories were the products of visionary flights of the imagination that soared beyond the limits of nineteenth-century science. Today, although many of Verne's concepts have become reality, and others have been surpassed, his works still captivate. His novels are packed with fascinating and meticulous details as well as escapist thrills.show more

Customer reviews

This is one of Barnes and Noble leather books and i couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. If you are a fan of Jules Verne such as i am you will find this book excellent both to read and look at. However two things to keep in mind, one the print is small and second my edition was from 2010 and not from 2011 as described. Anyway i don't mind, and i know i will enjoy this book and it's novels very, very much.show more
