"Je parie vingt mille livres que je ferai le tour de la terre en quatre-vingts jours ou moins". Ainsi s'adressait Phileas Fogg, en ce soir d'octobre 1872, à ses compagnons du Reform Club de Londres.

The castle in Transylvania by Jules Verne( Book )

51 editions published between 1890 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the fully illustrated and extended annotated edition including a rare and extensive biographical essay on the author, his life and works plus a wealth of illustrations. Jules Verne has not written a more sane and well-sustained story than this. The excellent descriptions of a wild region in Transylvania and the accounts of the homely ways and daily life of the shepherds and villagers give it an air of veracity not to be expected from this author. The mysterious castle is finely set among the cliffs in an almost inaccessible place. It has been the scene of tragedies, and now after having been long abandoned it is supposed to be the home of supernatural beings of diabolic power. After one desperate attempt to reach it the villagers are stricken with terror, and affairs are in a deplorable state when two travelers arrive. One of them, Count Franz, has reasons of his own for believing it to be the hiding place of a certain enemy of his. He sets out to ascertain, and the mystery of its magic powers is revealed by the fact that two men are using for their own purpose electric batteries and telephones. A tragic romance and the destiny of several individuals are complicated with the physical phenomena in a way that no one but the inventive and ingenious author would have thought of. The glimpses of life in a fascinating country too little known make the book worth reading

L'école des Robinsons by Jules Verne( Book )

30 editions published between 1875 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Robinson Crusoe School, originally published in 1882, classes with 'The Tribulations of a Chinaman' as a whimsical fantasy, tossed off by Jules Verne in a lighter mood, without either the geographical or the scientific purpose, one of which was usually dominant in his books. He jests good-naturedly here, as indeed he does in several of his later books, with the vast fortunes, the 'hundred millions' commonly ascribed to Americans. What could be more grotesque than the contest of the two San Francisco millionaires for possession of a worthless island, for which neither at the moment has any use? So, too, we have the exaggerated picture of the gilded youth, utterly unacquainted with the stern realities of life, pining to be a Robinson Crusoe on a desert island. The deliberate preparation for him of the uncomfortable situation he has desired, along with all the Crusoe incidents, would have in itself been a merry farce. When to this is added the vengeance of the defeated millionaire, turning loose his monsters also upon the solitude, we get an extravaganza mingled with elements of real danger and excitement such as has been seldom equaled"--Page 4 of cover

Extrait : "" " Il faut pourtant convenir que la vie a du bon! s'écria l'un des convives, accoudé sur le bras de son siège à dossier de marbre, en grignotant une racine de nénuphar au sucre. - Et du mauvais aussi! répondit, entre deux quintes de toux, un autre que le piquant d'un délicat aileron de requin avait failli étrangler.""À PROPOS DES ÉDITIONS LIGARANLes éditions LIGARAN proposent des versions numériques de qualité de grands livres de la littérature classique mais également des livres rares en partenariat avec la BNF.

Un roman historique de Jules Verne, où après avoir compulsé les archives, il nous donne sa version sympathique aux nordistes de la guerre de Sécession aux Etats-Unis. La discrimination raciale et la persécution des Noirs telles que constatées ont des résonnances presque familières à nos oreilles contemporaines. Ecrit en 1887, cet ouvrage se situe en bonne place entre Beecher-Stove (##La case de l'oncle Tom##, 1852) et Margaret Mitchell (##Autant en emporte le vent##, 1936)
