Verne, Jules: 20,000 Leagues Under the Seas. v2, 22 Feb 2008
Jules Verne's classic novel of underwater adventure. Most English translations of this novel are abridged; this is a complete (and very good!) translation.
I've done a fair amount of tidying up of the PG original - improving the formatting, converting all the "in line" footnotes into proper linked "endnotes", etc. The result is, I think, much nicer to read than the original PG version.

This is a re-conversion of Harry's epub version to mobi, according to my personal formatting preferences and enabling joystick navigation on the Kindle. The textual content is unchanged.

Is there some way of flagging this as the modern and updated Frederick P Walter translation, put into public domain in the 1990s? I believe it also includes a lot of text originally cut from the 19th century translation.

It is already "flagged" in our database: "Translated by Frederick Paul Walter (1943-...), apparently donated to Project Gutenberg". However, there is no way to see this for normal users. Maybe some day.
