Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas

Jules Verne

The cover for the Standard Ebooks edition of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas

Description

A seminal tale of science fiction, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas is one of Jules Verne’s most famous novels. It’s more than just a stirring adventure tale—it’s also one of Verne’s most scientifically-accurate and prescient works, predicting amazing advances in electricity, undersea travel, and technology.

In it we follow Professor Aronnax, a French marine biologist, as he and his companions, Conseil and Ned Land, become prisoners (guests?) aboard the Nautilus, captained by the mysterious and tortured Captain Nemo. Their adventures, including encounters with island-locked natives, battles with giant sea squids, and undersea shark hunting, have become iconic parts of modern culture.

This translation was produced and dedicated to the public domain in 1991 by F. P. Walter, making it an extremely rare treasure: a high-quality modern translation free from any intellectual monopoly restrictions.
