I don't think any scholar has done a comprehensive inventory of these. Most
studies of Verne's illustrations (like those listed in Note 13 and the Works
Cited of my article on Zvi's site at http://jv.gilead.org.il/evans/illustr/
don't seem to distinguish between "gravures," "dessins," "illustrations,"
and "chromotypographies" when discussing them.
I'm not sure when the "chromotypographies" began appearing in the in-8
Hetzel editions, but I would guess that it wasn't until the late 1880s or
early 1890s. Somebody who has a complete collection of Hetzel octavos might
be able to pin this down for you, as well as the exact number of "chromos"
appearing in each later novel.
