Example text

The Nautilus must have launched in 1865, three years before. “Thank you,” I said to Nemo. ” Then Nemo opened another door and I was led into a huge, splendidly lit lounge. It was a veritable museum, filled with treasures of art and nature. I saw masterworks by the greatest artists of all time and I stared like a child. I wandered through the room and spotted a large organ against one of the walls, musical scores by Mozart, Beethoven, and Haydn showed Nemo’s taste in music was as classical as his taste in art.

I admired the kaleidoscope of sea life we passed. Whenever I paused to admire something, Nemo would wave me on to keep going. Finally Nemo stopped and pointed to several dark masses a short way off. The forest of Crespo was composed of large, treelike plants. Everything grew straight up toward the surface, changing shape only as I pushed them aside when I walked. 50 When we finally stopped to rest, I dozed off and awoke to find a huge spider crab eyeing me. I shuddered with horror as I rose to my feet, and Nemo’s companion bashed the crab with his rifle butt.

It was impossible to estimate the value of the total collection. Then Nemo asked me to follow him again and he showed me my cabin. It was an elegant room to match the best hotels. Then he took me to the captain’s cabin. It was equally large but furnished only with necessities, as if the captain needed no comforts. Nemo asked me to sit. Then he showed me a variety of devices he used to navigate the Nautilus. I recognized many of the tools, such as a thermometer, a compass, and a sextant. He also had devices unique to an underwater craft, such as pressure gauges.
