Knowing that the reader’s impulse is first to trust her eyes, author and artist thus conspire to keep the secret as long as ell.

In the earlier novels, character studies and landscapes are common, more suggestions of the novels’ themes than depictions of events. Edvard Beaufort, Though I think it unlikely that further examples will demonstrate textual-graphic programs substantially different from from those I describe here, I welcome any information regarding editions of the novel in any language. Thirty novels include one or more maps describing the path of a voyage, many of which were drafted for the novel in which they appear — several by Verne himself Harpold In the comic, the structure corresponding to Paterne’s tautology — a complex linguistic object that had to be sustained as much textually as graphically in the Hetzel edition — has been split and redistributed.


Pancho Quilici’s sepia watercolors for the Spanish-language volume are quite beautiful Figure 11but are too abstract to support the calculated scheme of disguise and disclosure that Roux’s more realist style sustains. A young Frenchman, Jean de Kermor, and his uncle, the sergeant Martial, set out on an expedition to the headwaters of the Orinoco, one of the great rivers of South America.

If, as I propose below, Verne and Roux must have had discussions about the function of illustrations in the novel, Chaffanjon’s book probably served as an important intertext between author and artist. Roux is notably careful in illustrations of the early chapters of the novel not to show Jean in profile, as this might expose the telling outline of his her upper torso.

One of the interesting themes which Verne touches on in this book is race and racism.
