Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea Excerpt :

The year 1866 was signalised by a remarkable incident, a mysterious and puzzling phenomenon, which doubtless no one has yet forgotten. Not to mention rumours which agitated the maritime population and excited the public mind, even in the interior of continents, seafaring men were particularly excited. Merchants, common sailors, captains of vessels, skippers, both of Europe and America, naval officers of all countries, and the Governments of several States on the two continents, were deeply interested in the matter. For some time past vessels had been met by "an enormous thing," a long object, spindle-shaped, occasionally phosphorescent, and infinitely larger and more rapid in its movements than a whale. The facts relating to this apparition (entered in various log-books) agreed in most respects as to the shape of the object or creature in question, the untiring rapidity of its movements, its surprising power of locomotion, and the peculiar life with which it seemed endowed. If it was a whale, it surpassed in size all those hitherto classified in science. Taking into consideration the mean of observations made at divers times—rejecting the timid estimate of those who assigned to this object a length of two hundred feet, equally with the exaggerated opinions which set it down as a mile in width and three in length—we might fairly conclude that this mysterious being surpassed greatly all dimensions admitted by the learned ones of the day, if it existed at all. And that it DID exist was an undeniable fact; and, with that tendency which disposes the human mind in favour of the marvellous, we can understand the excitement produced in the entire world by this supernatural apparition. As to classing it in the list of fables, the idea was out of the question. On the 20th of July, 1866, the steamer Governor Higginson, of the Calcutta and Burnach Steam Navigation Company, had met this moving mass five miles off the east coast of Australia. Captain Baker thought at first th

Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea Excerpt :

A mysterious monster is haunting the seas, and no one quite knows what to make of it. The US Navy sends an expedition to uncover the monster's identity. Three people—oceanographer Professor Pierre Aronnax, his servant Conseil, and whaler Ned Land—are tossed overboard when the monster rams the ship. They discover that the monster is actually a submarine sailed by the secretive Captain Nemo. As they voyage through the seas, Captain Nemo's troubled past comes to the surface, and the journey takes a turn that may threaten them all. French author Jules Verne first published his classic science fiction novel in 1870. This is an unabridged version of the 1872 English edition, translated by Lewis Page Mercier.

20 000 Leagues under the Sea Excerpt :

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was originally serialized in 1869 and 1870 in the French magazine called Magasin d'éducation et de récréation. The deluxe illustrated edition, published in November 1871, included 111 illustrations. It was received with high acclaim when it was released and still is; it is regarded as one of the greatest adventure novels and one of Verne's greatest works, along with Around the World in Eighty Days and Journey to the Center of the Earth. The description of Nemo's ship, the Nautilus, was considered ahead of its time, as it accurately describes features on submarines which at the time were very primitive vessels. The distance of 20,000 leagues mentioned in the title is not a measurement of depth but of distance travelled. At the time of writing a league was approximately four kilometers.
