Publisher's Note
More about this image:
Verne has created such a realistic novel that the publisher feels it necessary, through this "Publisher's Note", to inform the reader that it is an imaginary journey. In fact, some reviewers criticized Verne for omitting some references to published work in his book, unaware that it was a novel.
