Description
1885 Jules Verne Five Weeks in Balloon Adventure Voyages Illustrated 80 Days



“Reality provides us with facts so romantic that imagination itself could add nothing to them.”

― Jules Verne



Jules Verne’s adventure novels are some of the most popular and famous works of literature of all time. Known mostly for his works of science fiction, ‘Voyages Extraordinaires’ was Verne’s largest collection of fantasy novels and stories. Perhaps his most famous work of all was none other than ‘Around the World in 80 Days’. This work of this masterpiece developed almost directly from Verne’s early work entitled ‘Five Weeks in a Balloon’ – the work that first brought Verne his popularity.



‘Five Weeks’ gives glimpses of what it would be like to explore in Africa, which was a highly foreign concept to European explorers at the time.



This rare 1882 edition features charming in-text illustrations and was compiled in French by Jules Verne, from the original notes of Dr. Ferguson, and done into English by William Lackland.
