This vintage book contains Jules Verne's "Five Weeks in a Balloon". It is a satire of the myriad books on African travel contemporary with its publication - although so far as the landscape, inhabitants, animals, and features of the countries are described, it is completely accurate. An abundantly amusing and interesting tale, this is a book that will entertain a wide range of readers, and one that would make for a worthy addition to any bookshelf. Jules Gabriel Verne (1828 - 1905) was a famous French writer renowned for his adventure novels and his considerable influence on the development of science fiction. Other books by this author include: "Journey to the Centre of the Earth" (1864) and "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea" (1870). This vintage book is being republished now in an affordable, modern edition, complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
