Jules Verne’s adventure novels are some of the most popular and famous works of literature of all time. Part of the illustrious ‘Voyages Extraordinares’ series, his book ‘From the Earth to the Moon’ is one of the most influential works of science-fiction of the 19th-century. It tells the story of American weapon makers attempting to build an enormous space gun big enough to launch people onto the moon! According to Barron, this book is

“the first interplanetary novel to focus on the technical and organizational preparations for the voyage, using the actual blast-off as a climax… one of the definitive foundation stones of the science fiction genre.”

 

This book is also known by its American title ‘The American Gun Club’; however, this London edition retains the more common ‘Earth to the Moon’ title. Published in 1874, this American edition was translated out of the original French by Louis Mercier.
