Jules Verne Translations

From ISFDB

Jump to: navigation, search

Jules Verne's stories have been translated many times. The purpose of this page is to help identify which title a publication should be placed under or if a new title record is required.

If the actual text is available, the first paragraph can be used to identify the translation in one of the tables below. If the title matches, then the link for that title can be used to select the title record page and add a new publication.

If the text matches but there is no matching title, then a new title record should be created. Please copy the translation information in the title note from one of the listed titles to the new title and remember to variant the title back to the original French title record.

If the text is not available, but the translator is known, a match may still be possible using the same approach as for the translation text.

As a final check, some translations are identified by the original publisher. That information has been included to help in such a case.

If a translation cannot be identified, the last entry in the table may be for unidentified translations. The title records here should be used as a base for such publications. They should be migrated to the correct translation / title if the translation is later identified.

The term Translation text is not known has been used in titles where the translator is known, but the text has not been provided. At some future point this may be entered. Publications should only be placed under these titles if the translator matches. The term Publication text is not known has been used for titles that include publications that have given no indication of their translation. This makes them generic 'bit-buckets', useful for sources which do not provide the necessary information to identify the translation.

an anonymous hand (Vorwort und Rückblick) Im Laufe des Jahres 168.. wurde die ganze Welt durch ein Unternehmen, das in den Annalen der Wissenschaft ohnegleichen war, in außerordentliche Erregung versetzt. Die Mitglieder des Gun-Klubs, eines Vereins von Artilleristen, der sich nach dem amerikanischen Bürgerkrieg in Baltimore gebildet hatte, kamen auf die Idee, sich durch den Abschuß einer Kugel mit dem Mond in Verbindung zu setzen.

(Von zehn Uhr zwanzig bis zehn Uhr vierzig abends) Schlag zehn Uhr verabschiedeten sich Ardan, Barbicane und Nicholl von ihren zahlreichen Freunden auf der Erde. Die beiden Hunde, die das Hundegeschlecht im Mondland einführen und verbreiten sollten, befanden sich bereits im Projektil. Die drei Reisenden näherten sich der Mündung des enormen Laufs, und ein Kran brachte sie bis zur Spitze des Geschosses.

N. D'Anvers On the evening of the 17th March 1859, Captain Craventy gave a fête at Fort Reliance. Our readers must not at once imagine a grand entertainment, such as a court ball, or a musical soirée with a fine orchestra. Captain Craventy's reception was a very simple affair, yet he had spared no pains to give it éclat. (part 1)

And so Fort Hope, founded by Lieutenant Hobson on the borders of the Polar Sea, had drifted! Was the courageous agent of the Company to blame for this? No ; any one might have been deceived as he had been. No human prevision could have foreseen such a calamity. (part 2)

On the other side, over the sea, which to the north-east and east was indistinguishable from the sky, a few tiny clouds reflected the sun's last rays, soon to be extinguished in the shades of the twilight, which lasts for a considerable time in this high latitude of the fifty-fifth degree of the southern hemisphere. 1923-00-00 Sampson Low, Marston & Company The Lighthouse at the End of the World

Lord Glenarvan did not wish the joy in the hearts of his friends to be chilled by tidings of their want of success. his first words, therefore, were,- “Courage, my friends, courage!

The Union Jack was flying from the mizen-mast, and a blue standard, bearing the initials E.B. embroidered in gold, and surmounted by a ducal coronet, floated from the topgallant head of the mainmast. 1876-04-00 George Routledge & Sons A Voyage Round the World: South America (Part 1)

By this annexation, the territory of the United States was increased sixty-seven thousand square miles, but the star of Florida glitters with only a secondary light in the constellation of thirty-eight stars that adorns the flag of the United States. 1887-08-20 George Munro Texar's Vengeance, or North Versus South (Part 1)

By the annexation the area of the republic was increased by some 67,000 square miles. But the star of Florida shines with second-rate brilliancy in that constellation of thirty-eight which spangle the banner of the United States of America.”“

After being long practiced at a large profit by such European nations as had possessions beyond the seas, this abominable traffic has now for many years been ostensibly forbidden; yet even in the enlightenment of this nineteenth century, it is still largely carried on, especially in Central Africa, inasmuch as there are sever states, professedly Christian, whose signatures have never been affixed to the deed of abolition

Voyages et aventures du capitaine Hatteras

This was originally serialized in two parts. Part 1 was titled as "Les Anglais au pôle nord" and a sub-title of "Aventures du capitaine Hatteras". A footnote explains this was a double-title ("Sous ce double titre"). Part 2 was titled as "Le Désert de glace" and sub-titled "Aventures du capitaine Hatteras". This entry seems to cover for both the first part and the combination, while the second part stands alone.

Erich Fivian Die Menschen des xxix. Jahrhunderts leben unausgesetzt mitten in einem Märchenland, ohne sich den Anschein zu geben, daß sie sich darüber im klaren sind. Wundern gegenüber sind sie blasiert, besonders angesichts jener, die ihnen der tägliche Fortschritt bringt. Alles scheint ihnen natürlich. Wenn sie ihre Zivilisation mit der Vergangenheit vergleichen würden, wüßten sie die unsrige besser zu schätzen und würden sich klar darüber, welch ein enormer Weg seither zurückgelegt wurde. Um wieviel bewundernswerter würden ihnen unsre modernen Städte vorkommen; unsre Städte mit hundert Meter breiten Fahrstraßen, mit dreihundert Meter hohen Häusern mit ihrer stets gleichbleibenden Temperatur, mit einem von Tausenden von Lufttaxis und Luftbussen durchfurchten Himmel! 1983-00-00 Diogenes Das XXIX. Jahrhundert: Ein Tag aus dem Leben eines amerikanischen Journalisten im Jahre 2889
Adelheid Witt In unserem 29. Jahrhundert leben die Menschen wie in einer Märchenwelt, ohne daß sie es recht zu wissen scheinen. Sie sind übersättigt, und auch über die Wunderwerke, die ihnen der Fortschritt tagtäglich bringt, können sie nicht mehr staunen. Alles erscheint ihnen selbstverständlich. Wenn sie unsere Zivilisation einmal mit der Vergangenheit verglichen, dann wüßten sie sie wohl besser zu würdigen und könnten ermessen, was für ein langer Weg seither zurückgelegt worden ist. Wie wunderbar fänden sie dann unsere modernen Städte, in denen die Straßen hundert Meter breit sind, die Häuser eine Höhe von dreihundert Metern haben, wo die Temperatur stets gleich bleibt und wo Tausende von Aerobussen am Himmel ihre Bahn ziehen! 1985-00-00 Das Neue Berlin m 29.

Die Ausdehnung dieser vier Meere konnte man nur schätzen, denn sie flossen alle ineinander, so daß ein Seemann, der von dem einen Ufer ablegte, nur immerzu geradeaus segeln mußte, um notwendigerweise an dem genau gegenüberliegenden Ufer wieder anzukommen.
