Notes

General Note
"Republication of the 1873 translation by George Makepeace Towle of Jules Verne's 'La Tour du monde en quatre-vingts jours'"--T.p. verso.
Description
As a result of a wager made at his London club, Phileas Fogg accepts a challenge to make a world tour in no more than 80 days (an incredible feat for anyone living in the Victorian era). Accompanied by his French valet, Passepartout, he sets out in a wild race against time; and with superhuman effort -- along with loads of cool reserve in the face of nearly insurmountable obstacles -- the resourceful Englishman and his loyal servant circle the globe and turn up at the club shortly before their allotted time expires. A delightful mixture of fantasy, comedy and dazzling suspense, this universally popular novel has thrilled audiences for over 120 years.
