Translators & Collaborators

Of course, as you know, Jules Verne was a French author. Thus, any English book you read, has been translated from the French. There are good translators and poor translators. You must be careful because translators may take great liberties including editting out passages they find offensive, or too technical!

  • Collaborators:
    • André Laurie (1845 - 1909) was the pseudonym of Paschal Grousset a French Politician and author. 
      L'épave du Cynthia (1885) was indicated as a collaboration when it was published by Jules Hetzel. Verne scholars now consider the book to be solely the work of André Laurie. It is believed that Jules Verne simply poroof-read the manuscript for Hetzel, and that it was a marketting ploy by Hetzel to have both names on the book.

      Laurie also wrote the original versions of Verne's The Begum's Fortune (1879) and The Southern Star Mystery (1884)
