In 1863 Jules Verne, famed author of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Around the World in Eighty Days, wrote a novel that his literary agent deemed too farfetched to be published. More than one hundred years later, his great-grandson found the handwritten, never-before published manuscript in a safe. That manuscript was Paris in the Twentieth Century, an astonishingly prophetic view into the future by one of the most renowned science fiction writers of our time.

Paris in the Twentieth Century is an astonishingly prophetic view of the future. Business and technology rule the world.  This novel depicts a society that has been given over to these inhuman masters, and in doing so, predicts rule by noisy automobiles, electric lights, mass transit, fax machines, computers, and calculators.
