The World of Jules Verne

Gonzague Saint-Bris

This book is a magical passport that transports readers into the extraordinary, visionary world of Jules Verne. Not strictly a biography, it is a fascinating mix of picturesque anecdotes, extracts from Verne’s novels, and real-life incidents. One reencounters unique characters such as Phileas Fogg and Captain Nemo against the background of Verne’s inventive genius. The book is beautifully and evocatively illustrated by St├ęphane Heuet, the well-known French artist, and is translated by Helen Marx.
