Thanks, Lejf, very much -- but I've been able to review that Hachette

As you observed, the text and images have been heavily abridged. In
this example, it is interesting to see which of the Roux images were
omitted during that process. It is not always the case that images
were removed because they corresponded to a passage of the text that
was omitted; there seems to be some other method at work, as images
that are, as it were, doubles of textual passages that were retained
have also been removed. (These observations presume, of course that
there *is* a method to the Bibliothèque verte editions... ;-) )
