M. Nadar, a celebrated Parisian photographer, has distinguished himself as an aeronaut, and recently made an ascent, with about a dozen friends, in the largest balloon ever made. His balloon, called ' Le Géant,' is thus described in a daily contemporary: "The design of M. Nadar is to render aerial voyaging not only instructive, but pleasant; so he has constructed reading- and billiard-rooms, and a photographic studio, in addition to the usual living apartments. The car which contains these is two-storied, the upper floor being a terrace, surrounded by a strong railing, or garde-fous (absit omen !), from which, I presume, our travellers are to fish for birds, for M. Nadar is amply supplied with fishing tackle, which must either be intended for aerial sport, else as provision against their ' falling in the sea.'"
