London: George Routledge & Sons
Jules Gabriel Verne (1828-1905) was born into an affluent family in Nantes in western France; his father was a lawyer. Verne studied law but never really practiced, preferring to pursue a career as a writer. His passion for science, technology, and geography led his research at the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris; what he discovered on new developments in these fields informed his fiction writing. Often called the ‘Father of Science Fiction’, Verne wrote ‘future possibilities’ into his works; many of which came true, like videoconferencing and tasers. This English translation of his seminal work, ‘Vingt mille lieues sous les mers’, was originally published in serial form from March 1869 to June 1870.
