Description

This superb collection of classic science fiction features the best of Jules Verne's epic adventure stories, including Five Weeks in a Balloon (1863), Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870), Around the World in Eighty Days (1873), and The Mysterious Island (1875). Often called the 'father of science fiction', Verne was a masterful storyteller and visionary, anticipating such technological marvels as the submarine and skyscraper. For nearly 150 years, his unusual characters, outlandish plots, and vivid descriptions have captivated readers, and now they are available - complete and unabridged - in this gorgeous slipcase edition.

Jules Verne (1828-1905) was a French novelist and playwright best known for his epic adventures, including Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea, Journey to the Center of the Earth, and Around the World in Eighty Days. A true visionary and master storyteller, Verne foresaw the skyscraper, the submarine, and the airplane, among many other inventions, and he is often regarded as the 'Father of Science Fiction.'
