Reviews

"This first English translation of Verne's...hybrid of travelogue and coded detective story...will...delight Verne enthusiasts with its scholarly commentary and original black and white illustrations."—Publishers Weekly

"With the publication of The Kip Brothers and The Mysterious Island, it is no longer possible to dismiss Verne as a 'children’s author'…. Revealing the sociological, scientific, historical, and geographic breadth of his vision, these titles provide room for critical speculation for years to come."—Janice M. Bogstad, Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts

Endorsements

"This nicely annotated translation allows Anglophone readers their first access to a revealing manifestation of Verne's imagination, his political awareness, his interest in the emerging technology of photography, and his role in the evolution of science fiction."—Paul Alkon, author of Winston Churchill's Imagination

"The Kip Brothers is a model of scholarship, thanks to its scrupulous fidelity, with the nuances of meaning perfectly carried over into English. The critical apparatus is informed and intelligent."—William Butcher, author of Jules Verne: The Definitive Biography
