This part is based on the following book:
Daniel Compère and Jean-Michel Margot : Entretiens avec Jules Verne
1873-1905. Genève, Slatkine, 1998, 275 pp (see SFS26 #78 [July
These are true interviews, made by journalists and visitors meeting Verne
in Amiens, mainly at his home or sometimes on the street, at the railway
station or at the “Societe industrielle”. We do not reference second hand
or imaginary interviews.
Most of the interviews can be localized with precision in magazines or
newspapers. Few of them were found without (or with less) information
about their origin. For example, a German interview was cut out of a
German newspaper and found in a German old Verne edition bought in Basel
This list is not complete and will never be. Discoveries of unknown
interviews can happen any time. If anybody makes such a discovery, we
would be gratefull for any information about it.
This part contains seven sections:
On board of the “Saint-Michel”
Around the world with Nellie Bly
Jules Verne at home
Around the world with Gaston Stiegler
The last and prolific years
A good bye
