Wow, impressive how this illustrator make use of medium and low values. His sense of design and composition are impressive. Do you have this book? Or did you get the images from the web?
Hilsen fra Norge :D. Mittwoch, It contained pictures by Jules Ferat. Ferat's illustrations will be shown in a later post. Ten years later editions appeared with with newly added text illustrations by Zdenek Burian.
Sie enthielt Bilder von Jules Ferat. Die ganze Abenteuergeschichte erreicht den Umfang von ca. A loud barking was heard. A dog accompanied the voyagers, and was held pressed close to his master in the meshes of the net.
Da erschallte ein lautes Gebell. One of the most distinguished was Captain Cyrus Smith. He was a native of Massachusetts, a first-class engineer, to whom the government had confided, during the war, the direction of the railways, which were so important at that time. A true Northerner, thin, bony, lean, about forty-five years of age; his close-cut hair and his beard, of which he only kept a thick mustache, were already getting gray Five minutes after having left the beach, the reporter and his two companions arrived at a sort of excavation, hollowed out at the back of a high mound.
There Top stopped, and gave a loud, clear bark. Spilett, Harbert, and Pencroff dashed into the cave. Neb was there, kneeling beside a body extended on a bed of grass. The body was that of the engineer, Cyrus Smith. Laut bellend stand Top davor. Spilett, Harbert und Pencroff eilten hinein. Es war der des Ingenieurs Cyrus Smith. Their insufficiency was still more clearly shown when a troop of quadrupeds, jumping, bounding, making leaps of thirty feet, regular flying mammiferae, fled over the thickets, so quickly and at such a height, that one would have thought that they passed from one tree to another like squirrels.
It was not a lamantin, but one of that species of the order of cetaceans, which bear the name of the "dugong," for its nostrils were open at the upper part of its snout. The enormous animal rushed on the dog, who tried to escape by returning towards the shore.
His master could do nothing to save him, and before Gideon Spilett or Harbert thought of bending their bows, Top, seized by the dugong, had disappeared beneath the water. Take your spear and do as I do. This was not his first tiger, and advancing to within ten feet of the animal he remained motionless, his gun to his shoulder, without moving a muscle.
The jaguar collected itself for a spring, but at that moment a shot struck it in the eyes, and it fell dead. At eight o'clock that evening the cart, after passing over the Mercy bridge, descended the left bank of the river, and stopped on the beach.
The onagers being unharnessed, were thence led to their stable They did well to hasten, for at a turn of the path near a clearing they saw the lad thrown on the ground and in the grasp of a savage being, apparently a gigantic ape, who was about to do him some great harm.
To rush on this monster, throw him on the ground in his turn, snatch Harbert from him, then bind him securely, was the work of a minute for Pencroff and Gideon Spilett. The sailor was of Herculean strength, the reporter also very powerful, and in spite of the monster's resistance he was firmly tied so that he could not even move.
And he ran round the left corner of the palisade. There he found a convict, who aiming at him, sent a ball through his hat. In a few seconds, before he had even time to fire his second barrel, he fell, struck to the heart by Smith's dagger, more sure even than his gun. The boat stopped, and the colonists perceived a bright light illuminating the vast cavern, so deeply excavated in the bowels of the island, of which nothing had ever led them to suspect the existence.
At a height of a hundred feet rose the vaulted roof, supported on basalt shafts. Irregular arches, strange moldings, appeared on the columns erected by nature in thousands from the first epochs of the formation of the globe. The basalt pillars, fitted one into the other, measured from forty to fifty feet in height, and the water, calm in spite of the tumult outside, washed their base. The brilliant focus of light, pointed out by the engineer, touched every point of rocks, and flooded the walls with light.
By reflection the water reproduced the brilliant sparkles, so that the boat appeared to be floating between two glittering zones. But during the night of the 8th an enormous column of vapor escaping from the crater rose with frightful explosions to a height of more than three thousand feet. The wall of Dakkar Grotto had evidently given way under the pressure of gases, and the sea, rushing through the central shaft into the igneous gulf, was at once converted into vapor.
But the crater could not afford a sufficient outlet for this vapor. An explosion, which might have been heard at a distance of a hundred miles, shook the air.
Fragments of mountains fell into the Pacific, and, in a few minutes, the ocean rolled over the spot where Lincoln island once stood. Aber in dieser Nacht vom 8.
