20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

by Jules Verne
Hardback
Publication Date: 01/03/2019
RRP  $27.99 $26.75

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was originally serialized in 1869 and 1870 in the French magazine called Magasin d’éducation et de récréation.

The deluxe illustrated edition, published in November 1871, included 111 illustrations. It was received with high acclaim when it was released and still is; it is regarded as one of the greatest adventure novels and one of Verne's greatest works, along with Around the World in Eighty Days and Journey to the Center of the Earth.

The description of Nemo's ship, the Nautilus, was considered ahead of its time, as it accurately describes features on submarines which at the time were very primitive vessels.

The distance of 20,000 leagues mentioned in the title is not a measurement of depth but of distance travelled. At the time of writing a league was approximately four kilometers.

Jules Verne

Jules Verne (1828-1905) was a French novelist and playwright best known for his epic adventures, including Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea, Journey to the Center of the Earth, and Around the World in Eighty Days.

A true visionary and master storyteller, Verne foresaw the skyscraper, the submarine, and the airplane, among many other inventions, and he is often regarded as the 'Father of Science Fiction.'
