Lighthouse at the End of the World

Clara receives Lighthouse at the End of the World as an eighth wedding anniversary gift from Doc.

Clara: "Is this...?"
Doc: "A new book from your favorite author — one he won't write for another twelve years."
Clara: "Oh, Emmett! It's perfect!"
— Clara and Doc in 1893, as Doc presents to her his eighth wedding anniversary gift of a copy of Jules Verne's yet-to-be written Lighthouse at the End of the World

Lighthouse at the End of the World (in French: Le Phare du bout du monde) was an adventure novel by Jules Verne, published posthumously in 1905.


On September 7, 1893, Dr. Emmett Brown inadvertently forgot his and Clara's eighth wedding anniversary due to his dedication in completing work on the Jules Verne Train. He traveled to October 27, 2017 in the second DeLorean time machine to find a gift for Clara, as well as to purchase the hover conversion equipment from Goldie Wilson Hover Conversion Systems needed for the time train.

Doc eventually found the perfect gift for Clara at the Blast from the Past antique/memorabilia store in Hill Valley: a copy of Lighthouse at the End of the World by her favorite author, Jules Verne, and which, in 1893, would not be written for another twelve years.

Behind the scenes

  • Although Lighthouse at the End of the World was published posthumously in 1905, Jules Verne wrote the first draft of the novel in 1901.
  • Although the novel is actually called The Lighthouse at the End of the World (the definitive article) and this is also the title given on Wikipedia, the book as seen in the comic book story itself is called Lighthouse at the End of the World; this title has therefore been adopted here.
