Around the World in 80 Days

Watermarked PDF

Phileas Fogg, a precise Englishman, and his faithful servant Passepartout, a Frenchman with an interesting past, circle the globe to win a bet. Conquering jungles, oceans, and mountains, the intrepid travelers face more than they bargained for, but always continue on. In the end, the adventure itself provides a special prize to Fogg.

Used as a source and inspiration for numerous stories, movies, and tales, “Around the World in 80 Days” has become a corner stone of adventure. Verne’s wry humor and attention to small details makes this one of his most memorable books. With Jules Verne considered by many to be the “father of science fiction” this book, like all of his, is a must-read.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
