Aboard the Nautilus, Aronnax and Land are introduced to an undersea world that is mysterious, marvelous, and exhilirating, and have extraordinary adventures among the flora and fauna of the ocean. First published in 1870 as one of Jules Verne's "Extraordinary Voyages," Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea is revered as a landmark of science fiction and a classic tale of wonder. This edition is one Barnes & Nobles leatherbound classics for young readers. It features full-color art by Milo Winter, an elegant bonded leather binding, a satin-ribbon bookmark, and distinctive gilt edging. This volume will provide hours of pleasure for readers of all ages.

Great part of the Leather Bound Classics Collection. Looks great with the other books keeping with the border and star theme as the other books. It's really a must have if your getting the entire series or just one to read or have on the shelf.

This is one of many Leatherbound Classics that I have purchased and it like the others does not disappoint. Beautiful leather cover makes this classic tale even more appealing.
