The mysterious island by Jules Verne( Book )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 513 libraries worldwide
The Mysterious Island was published in 1874, and it is one of Verne's longest novels. The plot depicts a group of men who have become castaways stranded on an island in the Pacific during the American Civil War. The novel describes their attempts not only to survive but also, with the aid of the scientific and technological know-how, to rebuild their world from the meager resources of the island. At the end, however, it is realized that Captain Nemo, from Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, has secretly been helping the settlers. A marvelous adventure story, The Mysterious Island is also notable for its modern retelling of the utopian deserted-island myth, with repeated echoes of Robinson Crusoe and the Swiss Family Robinson. This Wesleyan edition features notes, appendices and an introduction by Verne scholar William Butcher, as well as reproductions of the illustrations from the original French edition

Le tour du monde en quatre-vingts jours by Jules Verne( Book )
5 editions published in 2009 in French and held by 34 libraries worldwide
We do not present this most popular novel by French writer most widely read in the world: the breathless journey of Phileas Fogg, his valet Passepartout, and Princess Aouda, but give it henceforth as part of world literary heritage. Their adventure marks the end of the age of exploration to open the era of modernity: it is hereafter a straight line in space-time reduced to a single dimension that travels around the world. But this linear journey, far from being a pathetic return to the starting point, it is primarily in the field of transformation: the eccentric gentleman who returns to 7 Saville Row has become the happiest of men

Extraordinary voyages : Around the world in eighty days, Journey to the center of the earth, Twenty thousand leagues under the seas by Jules Verne( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 19 libraries worldwide
In the nineteenth century, French author Jules Verne awed readers with astounding adventures that transported them to the ends of the Earth, plunged them into the ocean's depths, and dropped them into mysterious subterranean realms. Dubbed Voyages Extraordinaries, these unique blends of action, adventure, and science fiction offered prescient glimpses into the future and a level of scientific speculation unprecedented in imaginative fiction. The three novels collected here represent some of Verne's most innovative and entertaining adventures. Around the World in Eighty Days is the chronicle of irrepressible adventurer Phileas Fogg, whose wager to circle the globe involves him in one cliff-hanging escapade after another. Journey to the Center of the Earth tells of intrepid explorers who discover a subterranean world of prehistoric marvels and menaces at the Earth's core. In Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas, scientist hero Captain Nemo investigates the exotic mysteries of the deep in his space-age submarine, the Nautilus. Two of these novels (Journey and 20,000 Leagues) are presented here with new English translations, and all three are newly illustrated with the incomparable fantasy art of Nate Pride
