Journey To The Center Of The Earth By Jules Verne

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
