In London, 1872, a man named Phileas Fogg makes a bet with his friends that he can travel across the entire planet in eighty days.

Around the World in Eighty Days. ... In the story, Phileas Fogg of London and his newly employed French valet Passepartout attempt to circumnavigate the world in 80 days on a £20,000 wager (£2,242,900 in 2019) set by his friends at the Reform Club. It is one of Verne's most acclaimed works.


An excerpt from the book's introduction
Mr. Phileas Fogg lived, in 1872, at No. 7, Saville Row, Burlington Gardens, the house in which Sheridan died in 1 8 14. He was one of the most noticeable members of the Reform Club, though he seemed always to avoid attracting attention; an enigmatical personage, about whom little was known, except that he was a polished man of the world. People said that he resembled Byron, — at least that his head was Byronic; but he was a bearded, tranquil Byron, who might live on a thousand years without growing old.
