Journey To The Center Of The Earth By Jules Verne
Paperback: $19.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
The often published tale from Verne is one of his more famous and has seen more adaptations onto film, television, music and animations than any other. The issue in the printed form is that various... More > translators have put their spin on it and some have even removed portions of the story. This edition rectifies this as much as possible by taking the best and most complete English version and then locating missing paragraphs and sections by scouting Polish, Russian and French language versions. It also contains 56 original illustrations. The story is basically that a German professor and his nephew and a small team enter a dormant volcano in iceland and travel downward in hope of finding several lost civilizations that are referenced in various works. They find much more than that! This is a work that has been largely disproven in the 150+ years since it was written, but is fascinating and a fun read all the same.< Less

The Short Stories of Jules Verne - 2 By Jules Verne
Paperback: $14.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
This is the second collection of the shorter stories of Jules Verne. In this volume five tales ranging from the short to novella-length are presented to give a wide variety of his works. This... More > collection is not unique as it was first published in 1887 under the title of A Winter Amid The ice. That is also the title of one of the stories. The others are: -Dr. Ox's Experiment -Master Zacharius -A Drama In The Air -A Winter Amid the Ice -The 40th French Ascent of Mont Blanc Very little is seen of these works in this day and age, unlike his more famous novels such as 20,000 Leagues Under the Seas, The Mysterious Island, etc. We believe it is about time to get these back into the hands of readers. Enjoy!< Less
The Master of the World By Jules Verne
Paperback: $13.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
In this sequel to Robur the Conqueror (Clipper of the Sky) Verne teases the reader with a seemingly new, yet familiar, antagonist. A Federal policeman, Strock, is sent out to find the inventor of a... More > mystery submersible seen plying the waters of Lake Erie. All attempts to legitimately purchase this fantastic submarine b the government have failed and it is feared that the man behind it may have an evil intent. Strock and two companions locate the sub and he is taken prisoner by its captain. As they escape some of the swiftest boats on the lake, Strock is treated to an experience unlike any other in a vessel unlike any other. His captor is unveiled as being self-proclaimed The Master of the World! This novel is not like the movie of the same name. That cinema feature was more akin to the first book in this duo, Clipper of the Sky. However, this may be read alone and full enjoyment of the story can be achieved. Also includes a special bonus story, Drama In The Air, about an interesting balloon trip!< Less
Off On A Comet By Jules Verne
Paperback: $19.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
Among Jules Verne's works is this cautionary tale about a day when the Earth is nearly struck by a comet only to have a portion of Europe break off and be flung into space. A number of people, mostly... More > on island outposts and sailing vessels, find themselves hurtling into the icy depths of space and the small piece of home on which they find themselves is rapidly cooling as it moves away from the sun. Through a stroke of luck the main characters locate a volcano and a huge cavern in its side that can provide them with the life-giving heat they need. But they soon discover a professor who, as it turns out, knew about the close encounter and is happy with the results. This two-part story follows the unwitting space farers as they journey both outbound, and then as they come back for an eventual collision with their home planet. The available texts for this story did not include any of the magnificent illustrations. That has been remedied and more than 100 of the original art piece have been restored.< Less
20,000 Leagues Under the Seas By Jules Verne
Paperback: $19.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
The classic Jules Verne science fiction story about the adventures of three men who unwillingly become part of the crew of the Nautilus, the incredibly advanced submarine of Captain Nemo. Unlike the... More > Disney movie, this novel contains much more about the oceans and the life under the surface than it does in giant squid fights (although that is in the book as well). Careful readers will note that the title of this edition reflects the original Verne title using the word "Seas." This refers to the many different seas in which they travel. Though portrayed as a sort of megalomanic, Nemo is actually a tortured man who lost his family and is haunted by their loss. Prof. Aronnax, the key character, both admired and loathes the man for his scientific creations and his cold-hearted attacks on surface ships. This is a fascinating book, and is another example of how far advanced Verne's level of thinking was for his time. Text was taken from an original French edition; illustrations from a later printing.< Less

Paperback: $10.99

Known variously as San Dessus Dessous, Topsy Turvy and The Purchase of the North Pole, this is Verne's sequel to From The Earth to The Moon. Like many of his works it points out some of the follies... More > of man in an almost satyrical way. It is the 1890s and man has not yet reached the actual North Pole, but an auction is won by a representative from an anonymous United States buyer. After the auction closes, the mysterious buyer is revealed to be Barbicane and Co., a company founded by Impey Barbicane, J.T. Maston and Captain Nicholl — the same members of the Baltimore Gun Club who, twenty years earlier, had traveled around the Moon inside a large cannon shell. They have left the comfort of retirement with an audacious plan to un-tilt the Earth's axis thus eliminating the seasons and tempering the Earth's atmosphere. But more importantly to those who would exploit the new positioning, it would bring an untold wealth of coal down from the frozen north and make mining it easy. But, what else might it do?< Less
