This edition contains the English translation and the original text in French. "From the Earth to the Moon" (French: "De la terre à la lune") is an 1865 novel by Jules Verne. It tells the story of the Baltimore Gun Club, a post-American Civil War society of weapons aficionados, and their attempts to build an enormous sky-facing Columbiad space gun and launch three people — the Gun Club's president, his Philadelphian armor-making rival, and a French poet — in a projectile with the goal of a moon landing. The story is also notable in that Verne attempted to do some rough calculations as to the requirements for the cannon and, considering the comparative lack of any data on the subject at the time, some of his figures are surprisingly close to reality. However, his scenario turned out to be impractical for safe manned space travel since a much longer muzzle would have been required to reach escape velocity while limiting acceleration to survivable limits for the passengers. The character of Michel Ardan, the French poet in the novel, was inspired by the real-life photographer Félix Nadar. "De la Terre à la Lune, trajet direct en 97 heures 20 minutes" est un roman d'anticipation de Jules Verne, paru en 1865.

In 1801, Lockwood, a wealthy young man from the South of England who is seeking peace and recuperation, rents Thrushcross Grange in Yorkshire. He visits his landlord, Heathcliff, who lives in a remote moorland farmhouse, Wuthering Heights. There Lockwood finds an odd assemblage: Heathcliff who seems to be a gentleman, but his manners are uncouth; the reserved mistress of the house who is in her mid-teens; and a young man who seems to be a member of the family, yet dresses and speaks as if he is a servant. Snowed in, Lockwood is grudgingly allowed to stay and is shown to a bedchamber where he notices books and graffiti left by a former inhabitant named Catherine. He falls asleep and has a nightmare in which he sees the ghostly Catherine trying to enter through the window. He cries out in fear, rousing Heathcliff, who rushes into the room. Lockwood is convinced that what he saw was real. Heathcliff, believing Lockwood to be right, examines the window and opens it, hoping to allow Catherine's spirit to enter. When nothing happens, Heathcliff shows Lockwood to his own bedroom and returns to keep watch at the window. Mr Earnshaw, père de famille, a deux enfants: un fils, Hindley, et une fille, Catherine. Parti en voyage à Liverpool pendant plusieurs semaines, le vieil Earnshaw revient avec sous son manteau un petit bohémien errant d'environ 6 ans, Heathcliff. Hindley et lui entrent rapidement en conflit et, à la mort du père, Hindley devient le maître de maison. Heathcliff est alors traité plus durement que jamais. La petite Catherine et lui se découvrent de tendres sentiments qui n'auront de cesse de s'approfondir au fil de leur adolescence. Rêvant tous deux d'un avenir plus glorieux que leurs vies respectives, les deux enfants s’échappent fréquemment dans la lande pour aspirer à de jours meilleurs.

This edition contains the English translation and the original text in French. "A Journey to the Center of the Earth" (French: "Voyage au centre de la Terre") is a classic 1864 science fiction novel by Jules Verne. The story involves German professor Otto Lidenbrock who believes there are volcanic tubes going toward the centre of the Earth. He, his nephew Axel, and their guide Hans descend into the Icelandic volcano Snæfellsjökull, encountering many adventures, including prehistoric animals and natural hazards, before eventually coming to the surface again in southern Italy, at the Stromboli volcano. From a scientific point of view, this story has not aged quite as well as other Verne stories, since most of his ideas about what the interior of the Earth contains have since been disproved, but it still manages to captivate audiences when regarded as a classic fantasy novel. "Voyage au centre de la terre" est un roman de science-fiction, écrit en 1864 par Jules Verne. Il fut publié en édition originale in-18 le 25 novembre 1864, puis en gd in-8° le 13 mai 1867. Le texte de 1867 est différent de celui de 1864. Il comporte en effet deux chapitres de plus (45 au lieu de 43). Ayant découvert un manuscrit runique ancien, un savant, son neveu et leur guide entreprennent un voyage vers le centre de la Terre en y entrant par un volcan islandais éteint, le Sneffels (c'est-à-dire le Snæfellsjökull). Comme à l'habitude de Jules Verne, le roman est un habile mélange de données scientifiques, d'extrapolations osées et d'aventure. L'introduction du roman reflète l'engouement d'alors pour une science jeune, la cryptologie. La suite enchaîne sur une description de l'Islande de la fin du XIXe siècle, puis sur une vaste introduction à deux autres sciences en plein essor, la paléontologie et la géologie (on notera d'ailleurs les divergences entre les interprétations de l'époque et celles couramment admises aujourd'hui).
