For those of you who grew up reading Jules Verne novels, you might want to check out Garmt de Vries’ Jules Verne Collection. As well as having bibliographries, images and quizzes on Jules Verne, de Vries has also included scans of the original maps that accompanied the Verne books. As well, there is a collection of what he calls “unofficial” maps, done in the same style. All scans come in a small size and a larger, easily readable size. In addition, there is a world map upon which any or all of the travels in the Verne books can be plotted.

    Is it supposed to look like an elephant, or is that a completely random observation?

    This one is a must for someone fascinated by Phileass Fogg and Sherlock Holmes
