This fabulous collection would make for an ideal addition to any bookshelf, and is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Verne's seminal work. The sections of this book include: "e;Jules Verne"e;, "e;Introduction"e;, "e;A Drama in the Air"e;, "e;The Watch's Soul"e;, "e;A winter in the Ice"e;, "e;The Peal of the Lima"e;, "e;The Mutineers"e;, and "e;Five Weeks in a Balloon"e;.
