More About the Author

Jules Verne was born in Nantes in 1828, the eldest of five children
of a prosperous family claiming French, Breton, and Scottish
ancestry. His early years were happy apart from an unfulfilled
passion for his cousin Caroline. Literature always attracted him
and while taking a law degree in Paris he wrote a number of plays.
His first book, about a journey to Scotland, was not published
during his lifetime. However, in 1862, Five Weeks in a Balloon was
accepted by the publisher Hetzel, becoming an immediate success.
It was followed by Journey to the Centre of the Earth, Twenty
Thousand Leagues under the Seas, Around the World in Eighty Days,
and sixty other novels, covering the whole world (and below
and beyond). Verne himself travelled over three continents, before
suddenly selling his yacht in 1886. Eight of the books appeared after
his death in 1905--although they were in fact written partly by his
son, Michel.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Bought it for my 13-year son who was reading Jules Verne on kindle but complained about the lack of illustrations. This book combines three novels and has the original illustrations. This completely transforms the reading experience. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection! 31 July 2010
By Hardwicke Benthow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book contains good translations of "The Clipper of the Clouds" and "Around the World in 80 Days". It includes all of the original illustrations, unlike most books, which only have a few. The one flaw of this book is that it has an inferior translation of "Journey to the Center of the Earth" (but it does have the original illustrations). It is easily worth the money.
4.0 out of 5 stars Even if these stories are familiar, the illustrations alone are worthwhile. 13 May 2011

I am not going to extol this SF pioneer and novelist any further. But the reproduction of the original illustrations are quite illuminating for their historical and artistic perspective. As far as I can tell, this includes the entire complement of the original illustrations for the novels.
