Dear Terry,

here you find information on the only Czech edition with other than original illustrations:

Nadherny Orinoko, translated by Vitezslav Unzeitig, published by Edvard Beaufort, Prague
three editions (always in Verne series):
1) 1913, in-8, 2 vols.: 2 watercolour covers by Jan Angelo Zeyer (1878-1945), otherwise unillustrated
2) ca 1913, in-18, 2 vols.: item + circa 8 greyscale illustrations, artist probably unknown
3) ca 1922, in-18, 2 vols.: item + circa 4 greyscale illustrations, artist probably unknown (not necessarily the same as above)

Unfortunately, I don't have any of these in my collection. (Once I saw one volume, probably the 1922 edition, but its condition and price had me not to buy it. Foolish perhaps, since I've never seen such an edition of either Verne novel again.) I can only supply you with samples of covers and illustrations of another volume of the series.
