'Around the Moon' by Bayard and Neuville 21.jpg

An illustration captioned "So this is How", from Jules Verne's novel Around the Moon drawn by Émile-Antoine Bayard and Alphonse de Neuville. This incipit refers to a passage that responds to the English nickname "green cheese" for the moon:
"So this is how the British treats the beauteous Diana, fair Phoebe, lovely Isis, charming Astarte, the queen of the nights, the daughter of Leto and Jupiter, the younger sister of the radiant Apollo!"
