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

The Frontispiece is a photo of Jules Verne seperated from the Title page by tissue.

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.

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.
