Verne, Jules: A Journey to the Interior of the Earth. v3. 12th Feb 2010
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, adding illustrations of the Runic inscriptions, 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.
EDIT: 12 Feb 2010
Corrected a number of issues. Uploaded a new v3.
