Originally written and published in French. This edition reprinted from the 1841 Tilt and Bogue English pirated edition, with the panels rearranged to match the 8 by 11 size of a typical issue of Brother Jonathan.
The illustration under the masthead is from the British edition. The full page of the American edition (publication title plus illo) is reprinted in the Italian edition.
The art, via the Tilt & Bogue edition, was redrawn from the Aubert 1839 bootleg, itself from the Töpffer 1837 first edition.
