From the Inside Flap:

Originally published as a French serial in Le Temps in 1872 and translated a year later into English, Around the World in Eighty Days is Jules Verne’s most successful and remembered of his Voyages Extraordinaire. Verne, along with H.G. Wells, is considered one of the fathers of science fiction literature, a prolific purveyor of wonderful adventure novels, and the man who first took us to the moon.

Born in 1828 in Nantes, France, Jules Gabriel Verne grew up in a seafaring family. At a young age he ran off to become a cabin boy until he was caught and returned to his home. As he studied law in Paris, he became interested in theater. A pivotal year for Verne was in 1850 when his father, outraged that he was wasting his time in the theater, cut off his tuition to law school as his first play was published. This forced Verne to write for a living. His first novel came in 1863 (Five Weeks in a Balloon) which was then followed by at least a new novel every year or so for the next forty-two years until his last novel in 1905.

His works featured an innocent fascination with technology and progress along with a love of adventure and exploration. He wrote in a time before the advances and horrors of the twentieth century changed the nature of science fiction into a critical and cautionary literary form. In Verne’s Extraordinary Voyages science represented the best of human curiosity and technology, the best of human ingenuity.

Despite the youthful exuberance of Verne’s work, his stories definitely express the exhilaration of discovering new worlds and new frontiers that have undoubtedly fueled the imaginations of countless readers and adventurers through the last century.
