This edition includes:
-­A summary of the plot
-­Jules Verne's biography

Excerpt:

On the 24th of May, 1863, my uncle, Professor Liedenbrock, rushed into his little house, No. 19 Königstrasse, one of the oldest streets in the oldest portion of the city of Hamburg.

Martha must have concluded that she was very much behindhand, for the dinner had only just been put into the oven.

"Well, now,­" said I to myself, "if that most impatient of men is hungry, what a disturbance he will make!­"

"M. Liedenbrock so soon!­" cried poor Martha in great alarm, half opening the dining-­room door.

"Yes, Martha; but very likely the dinner is not half cooked, for it is not two yet. Saint Michael's clock has only just struck half-­past one.­"

"Then why has the master come home so soon?­"

"Perhaps he will tell us that himself.­"

"Here he is, Monsieur Axel; I will run and hide myself while you argue with him.­"

And Martha retreated in safety into her own dominions.

I was left . . .

MATHIAS SANDORF follows the lonely quest of a Hungarian patriot seeking revenge.  Mathias Sandorf and two companions had been deeply involved in a conspiracy to win Hungarian independence, only to have it unmasked by two petty thieves hoping to earn a reward from the police.  Of the three conspirators, only Sandorf escapes; he vows revenge and spends fifteen years tracking down his betrayors.  Jules Gabriel Verne (1828-­1905) was a French author who, along with British writer H. G. Wells, is considered to be one of the founders of the science fiction genre.  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. He is the second most translated author of all time, only behind Agatha Christie.  A number of his books have been made in films several times.

Le Tour du Monde en 80 Jours - Vol 1 (of 2)
Around the World in Eighty Days - Vol 1 (of 2)
by Jules Verne

Considered the father of the science-­fiction genre, Jules Verne wrote novels presaging many modern developments. Around the World in Eighty Days is one of the most famous ones. The language is intermediate to advanced level. It is now offered in paragraph by paragraph translation (original French and English). Although both works separately are in the public domain, the paragraph by paragraph arrangement is new. Furthermore, many of the paragraphs have been broken down into smaller units for easy reading.

The primary aim of the series is to provide authentic reading experience by great authors for intermediate to advanced language learners. Paragraph by paragraph translation facilitates quick grammar and vocabulary checks. Some people learn quite well by studying, while others may learn much more efficiently on the basis of actual texts.

Author:

Jules Verne’s most famous novel was originally conceived as a play—and had its greatest 19th century success as a stage hit the author himself adapted. Running for thousands of performances in many different countries, including the United States, here is the original playscript, translated directly from the French by the producers of the original Broadway presentation, not published since 1874.

Like filmmakers after him, Verne understood the need to make changes for the stage, and in collaboration with Adolphe d’Ennery created a distinct variation, a play with many different characters and episodes than are in the novel. Included in this volume is an introduction about how the play was created and staged, together with the first translation of Verne’s essay, “The Meridians and the Calendar,­” explaining how Phileas Fogg accomplished his feat.

Long before Verne stories had formed the basis for such movies as Around the World in 80 Days, many of his plays were theatrical blockbusters on the 19th century stage. This volume by Frank Morlock, leading translator of Verne plays, explores some of Verne’s youthful stage writing. Four plays range from romantic comedies to a scientist’s discovery that there may not be such a difference between human and ape after all!

THE BEGUM'S MILLIONS is a little-­known work by Jules Verne which follows the contest between two men, the inheritors of a vast fortune.  The men, one French and the other German, believe in their innate superiority of their respective nations--­and each man sets out to prove it.  The Frenchman, Dr. Sarrasin, establishes a utopian city-­state along the Oregon coast.  With an emphasis on sanitation and quality of life, Sarrsin's city contrasts with that of Dr. Schultze, the German whose city in the interior of Oregon is built on heavy industry and mining.  The German city (Stahlstad) soon prepares to war against the French using chemical weapons.  Jules Gabriel Verne (1828-­1905) was a French author who, along with British writer H. G. Wells, is considered to be one of the founders of the science fiction genre.  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. . . .
