Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this wonderful Montblanc Jules Verne Writers Limited Edition Fountain Pen, which comes with its book style Montblanc presentation box (including outers) and information booklet. The pen has been regularly, but carefully used over the years, and is presented in overall lovely condition. The nib was reground, upon initial purchase, from a broad to an italic broad – this was done by Roy Zeff of Penfriend in London.
Ever year Montblanc honour a great literary figure, as part of their writers limited edition. In 2003 it was the legendary novelist, Jules Verne. Credited with creating the genre of science fiction, his most famous novel is “Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea”.
The design of the pen takes its inspiration from this novel, with the barrel and cap being crafted from polished lacquer, which is finished in a mesmerising blue. The guilloche pattern reflects the waves of the ocean and the platinum-plated trim works perfectly as a contrast. Verne’s signature can be found on the cap.
The nib features an engraving of a divers helmet and being a piston filler, your choice here is bottled ink.
The Jules Verne is widely recognised as one of the most visually striking of all the Writers Editions and the depth of the blue barrel and cap has to be seen to be fully appreciated.
The important details are as follows…

With every pen that we sell we provide a card that includes the manufacturer, model, serial / limitation number and date it was purchased from us. We do this because our customers like to have documentation showing that it’s been purchased from a trusted seller. As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
