More > Days,” Etc.) while many others are not (“Off On a Comet,” “The Voyages and Adventures of Captain Hatteras,” Etc.). In addition to his novels he also wrote numerous short stories, some for publication in the magazines of the day and others to be published in small, inexpensive editions. Not to mention his plays. So we won’t mention them except to say that one is included in this collection. This book is a small collection of a few of his shorter works—ones that have been translated into English—and are presented not as prime examples of the man’s work but as historical documents. They are: In The Year 2889, A Voyage In a Balloon, Measuring a MEridian, The Pearl of Lima, Mr. Chimpanzee (a play) Dr. Triflegas: A Fantastic Tale, and An Express Of The Future. Enjoy!< Less

Jules Verne was an incredible visionary.

There are many other surprises in store for the reader, and though Verne was incorrect on a few details it is almost as if he had visited his future and witnessed the events. This is a combination of the two stories detailing the trip and the return to our planet. Eighty illustrations accompany the text. This is a fine translation of Verne's original French writings with only minor interference by several editors over the years to standardize spellings and correct a few obvious typos.< Less
