Set from the text of George M. Towle?s original 1873 translation, this Modern Library Paperback Classic of Verne?s adventure novel comes vividly alive, brilliantly re?ecting on time, space, and one man?s struggle to reach beyond the bounds of both science and society.Shocking his stodgy colleagues at the exclusive Reform Club, enigmatic Englishman Phileas Fogg wagers his fortune, undertaking an extraordinary and daring enterprise: to circumnavigate the globe in eighty days.
