AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS

Chapter I

IN WHICH PHILEAS FOGG AND PASSEPARTOUT ACCEPT EACH OTHER,

THE ONE AS MASTER, THE OTHER AS MAN

Mr. Phileas Fogg lived, in 1872, at No. 7, Saville Row, Burlington

Gardens, the house in which Sheridan died in 1814. 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.

Certainly an Englishman, it was more doubtful whether Phileas Fogg

was a Londoner. He was never seen on 'Change, nor at the Bank,

nor in the counting-rooms of the "City"; no ships ever came into

London docks of which he was the owner; he had no public employment;

he had never been entered at any of the Inns of Court, either at the Temple,

or Lincoln's Inn, or Gray's Inn; nor had his voice ever resounded

in the Court of Chancery, or in the Exchequer, or the Queen's Bench,

or the Ecclesiastical Courts. He certainly was not a manufacturer;

nor was he a merchant or a gentleman farmer. His name was strange

to the scientific and learned societies, and he never was known

to take part in the sage deliberations of the Royal Institution

or the London Institution, the Artisan's Association, or the

Institution of Arts and Sciences. He belonged, in fact,

to none of the numerous societies which swarm in the English capital,

from the Harmonic to that of the Entomologists, founded mainly

for the purpose of abolishing pernicious insects.
