One of the best part of being an illustrator, in my humble opinion, is reading books that you might not have otherwise. Given the modern-day representations, I think I was expecting some sort of pulpy adventure story (quite an anachronistic notion, given the book was written in 1869). In reality, it’s a scientific travelogue: very thoroughly observed and researched. There are also some very beautiful descriptions of foreign lands that, when you think about it, are no closer to most of us now than they were in 1869.
