=> Dear Garmt, I agree with you but you have to remember that Jules Verne quotes Elisée Reclus several times especially in this novels, and you know how much Elisée Reclus defended the Esperanto (see my article : http://perso.orange.fr/jules-verne/reclus.PDF
). This is an other connection possible between Jules Verne and Esperanto... Lionel ;-)
