A Priest in 1835 (ebook)

A PRIEST IN 1835 (HARDCOVER LIMITED EDITION) by Jules Verne

Translated with an introduction and notes by Danièle Chatelain and George Slusser.

Here is not only a treasure, but a literary revelation—the very first novel by Jules Verne. Finished by the age of twenty and under the influence of Edgar Allan Poe, A Priest in 1835 was composed before Verne encountered any editors to hone his storytelling skills. Yet, this tyro effort is a masterpiece, a Gothic tale told in a modernist style with a nonlinear narrative. 

Noted science fiction scholars Danièle Chatelain and George Slusser offer this first English translation, with extensive critical commentary. A Priest in 1835 reveals that Verne not only had the prophetic skills that would render him the father of science fiction, but a technique that would win him a place among the vanguard of 21st century authors. 

Vintage early engravings reveal the novel’s actual settings, in Verne’s home town of Nantes.
