Summary

Journey to the Center of the Earth is one of Jules Verne's first novels and remains one of his most audacious and imaginative. This audiobook uses the translation published anonymously by Routledge in 1876, recently identified as the work of the translator Jessie Campbell.
While the translation has long been highly regarded among Vernians for its style and accuracy, some aspects of the language have not aged well, and updates and corrections have been made. A short essay at the end of the audiobook describes the kinds of changes that were made and the reasons for making them. The goal has been to preserve the unique characteristics of Jessie Campbell's work while removing the more jarring obstacles to its immediate enjoyment.
Tad Davis, a longtime member of the North American Jules Verne Society, has previously recorded the Sidney Kravitz translation of The Mysterious Island. He is currently working on new versions of Verne's Baltimore Gun Club novels.
