From the Publisher. This Halcyon Classics collection contains 36 of Jules Verne's best known works. Verne (1828-1905) was a French writer who, along with English author H.G. Wells, is regarded as the "Father of Science Fiction." He is best known for his novels A Journey to the Centre of the Earth (1864), From the Earth to the Moon (1865), 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1869–1870), A Journey to the Center of the Earth (1871) Around the World in Eighty Days (1873) and The Mysterious Island (1875). Verne wrote about space, air, and underwater travel before navigable aircraft and practical submarines were invented, and before any means of space travel had been devised. A number of his works have been made into feature films and his books remain popular and in print more than a century after his death.

I remember buying this as a teenager after having read all the Tolkien and C.S. Lewis stories. Many sketches and doodles came from that experience. These are great books to get you drawing gizmos and contraptions.
