These are illustrations used in the 1906 French edition of H.G. Well's War of the Worlds. They were done by the Brazilian artist Henrique Alvim Corrêa. He did early examples on spec and took them to London where he got Well's approval to go forward.
They are taken from the Public Domain Review article Henrique Alvim Corrêa’s Illustrations for The War of the Worlds (1906) which has more information about Corrêa. There are more images after the jump, and a few more at the link.
