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 Stéphane Heuet, the well-known French artist, and is translated by Helen Marx.
