Verne Cartographies

After much searching I have finally found a chart showing the track of the Nautilus in 20,000 Leagues under the Sea. Its not very clear, but that has a charm of its own.



















I found the map here, which links you to some fascinating articles about Jules Verne and his works.

Still, if you happen to see a bigger or clearer version , please let me know.



And if you havent seen them before, here are some fantastic collection of maps of the heroes travels in Voyages Extraordinaires:
