Verne's two classic books "From the Earth to the Moon" and its sequel, "Around the Moon", in a single volume.

Chapter 4 of "Around the Moon" - "A Little Algebra" - has some equations in it, which come out very poorly as ASCII text. I've replaced these with graphical versions taken from an appallingly badly translated, but illustrated, version of "Around the Moon" that's also on PG.

There are a number of different English translations of these books on PG. I've read them all and consider this one to be by far the best translation, which is why I chose it for this project.

Enjoy!

You rock HarryT! One of my childhood favorites as well. Good work on the algebra, definitely above and beyond.
