It was a serial comic originally published in Switzerland as Les Amours de Mr. Vieux Bois. Later it was pirated by a British publisher and the pictures re-drawn. The British plates were reused, at least initially There are very few copies existent in any form or condition. Images available. USPS tracking used on all domestic shipments.
