Frédéric Jaccaud, curator of Jean-Michel Margot’s Verne Collection at the Maison d’Ailleurs (House of Elsewhere) in Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland.
The City of Nantes (France) and its Municipal Library have placed all Jules Verne manuscripts online. They helped make this publication possible, and the Society would like to thank the City of Nantes and its Bibliothèque municipale (Agnès Marcetteau, director) for their ongoing assistance with the Palik Series.
Het Jules Verne Genootschap (the Dutch Verne Society)
We are particularly indebted to Bernhard Krauth, chairman of the German Jules-Verne-Club since 2005. Intensely interested in the illustrations of the original French editions of Verne’s work, he has been deeply involved in a project to digitize the illustrations, more than 5,000 in all. The project is for common, non-commercial use, and most of the illustrations in this publication were made possible through his generosity.
