Description

When the chance discovery of an ancient cryptogram reveals a path to the Underworld, the adventurous Professor Otto Lidenbrock sets off to Iceland, determined to reach the centre of the earth. But nothing can prepare him and his nephew Axel for what they will find beneath the ground; measureless caverns and vast subterranean seas reveal all of the earth's known history and more, while dinosaurs do battle, giant men herd mastodons, and danger and excitement wait around every corner.

Richly illustrated by Edouard Riou, the French painter and illustrator who worked with Jules Verne on six of his novels, this Macmillan Collector's Library edition of Journey to the Centre of the Earth also includes an afterword by Ned Halley.

Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.

About Jules Verne

Jules Gabriel Verne was born in France in 1828 and was destined to follow his father into the legal profession. He trained for the bar in Paris but took more readily to literary life, befriending Dumas and Hugo, and making his living by writing librettos. His first science-based novel, Five Weeks in a Balloon, was published in 1862 and made him famous. Verne went on to write dozens more such adventures, including Around the World in Eighty Days (1872). In later life, he entered local politics at Amiens, where he had a home, and also lived in Paris, in the street now named Boulevard Jules Verne. He died in 1905.
