Jules Verne

Books by Jules Verne

Jules Verne (1828-1905) was a French author who set out to write books that combined scientific fact with adventure stories. While he was working in Paris as a stockbroker, he met the publisher Pierre-Jules Hetzel, and his Voyages Extraordinaires were launched, starting with Five Weeks in a Balloon in 1863—a beautifully illustrated work of ‘scientific fiction.’ The series would end up running to some 50 titles in his lifetime, including his best-known works: Journey to the Centre of the Earth, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Around the World in 80 Days. Today Verne is regarded as one of the founders of science fiction and his books are among the world’s most translated novels.
