Captain Nemo first shows Aronnax his library. It is ingeniously fitted with light movable desks and boosts twelve thousand books. Aronnax will be allowed to use whatever books he wants and to write as he pleases. The two men share cigars made of seaweed. Aronnax finds the taste to be delightful. They go into a drawing room that is full of wonderful art treasures, including paintings by Raphael, da Vinci, Titian and other great masters.
