Plot Synopsis:
(courtesy of D. Kytasaari - http://epguides.com/djk/JulesVerne/works.shtml
Phileas Fogg accepts a wager that he can't travel around the world in eighty days, but it looks like trouble when Fix trails him, believing him to be a suspected gentleman thief.

Note: In some books and cartoons/comics, the main character is incorrectly called Phineas Fogg. The correct name for the main character of this book is Phileas Fogg.

Timeframe of novel: Events take place between October and December 1872


Around theWorld Records
Numerous people have gone around the world faster than Phileas Fogg, and there are always records being broken. I have compiled some Around the World Records on their own page

ed: Around the World, and 20,000 Leagues were the last 2 books to be added to the Uniform Edition. Almost an after thought! It appears that this addition came in the early 1900's and I would consider these "weakest" of the sets volumes, in the sense that they only contain 12 illustrations each.

The Dustjacket flap reads:
"Every Uncle should buy at least six copies of this book, one for himself and five for all his neices and nephews. For as a writer of pure adventure, of exciting narrative and hairbreadth escape, Verne has never been surpassed. Most of his predictions in the four books contained in this volume have already been fulfilled except, of couorse the trip to the moon (and rockets are now being built to accomplish this). The best of his stories are included in this one volume. With maps, endpapers and a frontispiece for each tale in two colors by Helene Carter."

* The Dustjacket says Jules Verne Omnibus
& the Book says Omnibus Jules Verne like the previous Lippincott edition.

The Dustjacket flap reads:
"Four complete novels are included in this edition of the best-known works of Jules Verne. They have a double appeal. On the one hand, they rank with the classic adventure stories of Rudyard Kipling, G. A. Henty, and H. Rider Haggard, and on the other they are as much a part of everyone's literary background as Tom Sawyer or Treasure Island.
The famous tales of Jules Verne are among the classic examples of scientific prophecy. At the time they were first published, they seemed the wholly impossible product of a too vivid imagination. Today we are not surprised at submarines and aeroplanes and rockets and we have surpassed even his prophecies of speedy travel.
But we have not yet caught up with the prophecies of Jules Verne. Some of the activities of Captain Nemo of the good submarine Nautilus in Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea will seem beyond the reach of human ingenuity, and our efforts with rocket ships are still only experimental. In many ways, Jules Verne is still in advance of the times, and the excitement and action of these stories remain a unique portion of the literature of scientific adventuring."

Wallace and Gromit come face to face with Jules Verne

OUP is to publish a special edition of Jules Verne's Around the world in 80 days, fronted by plasticine heroes Wallace Gromit. The animated characters created by Nick Park have been recruited to lead the Brunel 200 Great Reading Adventure, in a bid to get south-west England reading Verne's book in the 80 days from 5 January 2006. Brunel will work in partnership with OUP to distribute 52,000 editions of the book to schools, libraries and companies throughout the region. There will also be 50,000 abridged children's versions and 42,000 illustrated guides to the history behind the book.

The project is jointly funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Millennium Commission, Arts Council England and First Great Western Railways.
