Dear colleagues,

According to Garmt's index of Verne in translation, there have been
at least 18 published translations of _Le Superbe Orénoque_ (SO), in
the languages listed at the end of this email message.

I'm working on an essay on illustrated editions of the novel. I've
been able to get copies of illustrated editions in French (of
course), English, and Spanish (including the Editorial Bruguera comic
book). Editions in other languages I must request from libraries
overseas. I hope that I may secure the help of fellow Vernians on
this list to determine which of these editions I need to review for
my research.

   - I am interested only in illustrated translations of the novel

   - I am interested only in translations illustrated by someone
other than G. Roux, who illustrated the Hetzel editions.

If you know of a translation of SO in one of the languages listed
below that was illustrated by someone other than Roux, would you
please contact me by email off the JVF list, so that I might ask you
some questions about it?

Warm regards & thanks,
