Benett, L.


L. Bennet is an engraver from our world who, in 1879 AD, illustrated Les cinq cents millions de la Begum (The Begum's Fortune), of Jules Verne. His representation of Schultze's giant canon suggests that he has visited Urbicande, unless he worked from a very precise description given by Verne himself 1). In Urbicande they used this type of canon to destroy the Network; they failed.
