Description: "Most people think of science fiction as a feature of the modern world, but some of the best science fiction stories were written more than a hundred years ago by the French writer, Jules Verne. Many things that he wrote about have since come true: his stories Twenty Thousand Leagues Beneath the Sea and Around the Moon are now more fact than fiction. Here is one that hasn't come true yet — but who knows? Perhaps it will soon!"

Excellent colour illustrations throughout – some of which are full-page. Illustrated front pastedown and endpaper depict a tunnel full of geological marvels.

Other than the spine and lower corners being slightly bumped, the pictorial laminated boards are in superb condition. Internally, the book is as new.

Measures 17.5 cm × 11.5 cm (7″ × 4.6″). 12mo. 51 pp.
