Post Verne, Jules: A Journey to the Interior of the Earth. v2, 22 Feb 2008

Another Verne classic, "A Journey to the Interior of the Earth". Again, I've used the best of the several PG translations, and done considerable tidying up - reformatting, making all the in-line footnotes into proper linked endnotes, etc.

This is one of the few English versions which is actually an accurate translation of the French original. By far the most commonly-encountered English version, generally called "Journey to the Centre of the Earth", is a complete "re-write" of the book rather than a translation, with most of the names changed and considerable plot differences. I'll upload that one so that people can see just how different the two versions are!

Interesting piece of triva: this book (first published in 1864) is the first novel to describe what we now call dinosaurs.

Enjoy!

EDIT: 22 Feb 08

Recreated the book. Added illustrations of the various Runic inscriptions. Manually replaced hyphens by dashes where needed. All in all a considerable improvement over the previous version. Uploaded v2.

This is my first visit to the forum -- I just bought a Sony PRS-505 -- and I'm amazed at the community and all the effort performed by Reader enthusiasts. This Jules Verne caught my eye, and I can't wait to start my journey. Thank you!

I originally started reading the version from the Sony store, but I decided to see if Mobile Read had a copy.

I really appreciated the addition of the Runes -- thanks so much for the extra work!
