From The Earth To The Moon


From The Earth To The Moon has become one of the most widely read and influential books ever written. 

Written almost a century before the daring flights of the astronauts, Jules Verne’s prophetic novel of man’s race to the stars is a classic adventure tale written with uncanny accuracy long before such feats were real possibilities.

Published in hundreds of editions and translated into virtually every modern language, it has not been out of print since 1865.

It reveals the astounding range, subtlety, artistry, and depth of a true original, Jules Verne, author of Around The World In Eighty Days, A Journey to the Center of the Earth, From The Earth to the Moon, The Mysterious Island, and countless other literary masterpieces.

JULES VERNE, often referred to as the “Father of Science Fiction,” wrote his first novel, Five Weeks in a Balloon, at the age of 35. He went on to be the second most translated author on earth, (after Agatha Christie), writing books about a variety of innovations and technological advancements years before they became practical realities.

 *This edition also features the story "Around the Moon", the sequel to "From the Earth to the Moon.”
