Author: Jules Verne

One of my favorite Science Fiction authors was Jules Verne ... he wrote a LOT of books, and if you remember WHEN he lived - it is thrilling and amazing to line up his thoughts and ideas to what has happened in our past, but his future.

Sometimes he is amazingly accurate.  And sometimes, it is almost hilarious how far off from the truth he was.  He died in 1905 ... before cars and airplanes were common, electricity and telephones were still a novelty, trains were a fast mode of transportation.  He was a grown man in his 30's during the Civil war, having been born in 1828.  During his time, science, technology, and business had taken huge leaps of advancement.  Ideas were being challenged, and for the first time, people were communicating at relatively rapid speeds as mail and trains and telegraph became a standard.

DECORATIVE COVERS ARE NOT FREE, but the Creme color tops and colored bottoms usually are free.
