Vintage Cover Art: Fitzroy Edition of Jules Verne

Many scholars translated the works of Jules Verne into English, but the single most prolific effort came from I.O. Evans. His translations, known as Fitzroy Edition of Jules Verne, comprised of sixty eight volumes and were highly successful commercially. It can be argued that modern annotated translations of Verne are more scholarly, but the Herculean effort of Evans is truly admirable.

Fitzroy Editions published by Ace had some great cover art. Here are a few samples:
