The Jules Verne Collecting Resource.
If you're a Verne fan or a book collector at all, this site is an absolute treasure. There are pictures of almost every single edition of his works
, as well as everything even slightly Verne-related, including: movie posters
, playing cards
, cards for stereoscopes
, postcards he sent
, board games
, Jules Hetzel's excellent covers
for his work (more here,
and this one
is amazing), the man himself
, and god knows what else - pretty much everything.
If it's not here, it's somewhere else
, like the extraordinary maps
which adorned some editions, or the virtual library
with links to all of his works, the many, many incredible illustrations
therein, and even one scanned manuscript
(in French, obviously). Hope this makes somebody's day as much as it made mine.
