Book Description Paris : Chez Aubert Galerie Véro Dodat, 1839. 1st Paris ed. 84 leaves. 9 x 5.5 inches. Cover title: Mr. Vieux Bois. Printer statement at bottom of title-page: ‘Impr. d'Aubert & Cie’. Preface appears on title-page. Probable original boards, worn at corners; front joints weak. Aeg. Occasional spotting and light dust soiling to margins; old ink splash to top of p.75. Cover title: Mr. Vieux-Bois. A very good copy. Graphic comic novel by Rodolphe Topffer, originally published in Geneva in 1837. Lithographed throughout, including title-page; text in French. Rodolphe Töpffer (1799 – 1846) was born in Geneva. Educated in Paris, he then returned to Geneva and became a school teacher. In 1832 he was appointed Professor of Literature at the University of Geneva. Töpffer is best known for his graphic novels, regarded as the earliest European comics. He initially wrote them to entertain his friends, among whom was Goethe who persuaded Töpffer to have them published. His ‘Histoire de M. Jabot’ was the first of these and features the comic adventures of a middle-class dandy attempting to enter upper-class society. ‘Les amours de Mr Vieux Bois’ describes the adventures and escapades attending Mr Vieux Bois in his search for love. Each page has one to four captioned cartoon panels, much like modern comics. In 1842 ‘Les amours de Mr Vieux Bois’ was published in the United States as ‘The Adventures of Mr. Obadiah Oldbuck’ and was the first American comic book. Rodolphe Töpffer is generally considered the father of the modern graphic novel. Bookseller Inventory # wb14764
