A very rare original page from Oscar Hamel et isidore by Frédéric-Antonin Breysse. A French artist who was regularly in a clinch with Hergé, because of Oscar's resemblance to Tintin, but also because of the similarity between Breysse's story “de Strijd tegen de Maandraken” and Hergé's “Explorers on the Moon”, where it is remarkable that the first album was published much earlier than the latter.
His style is second to none and very refined. Beautiful lines, extremely detailed.
First published in Coeurs Vaillants in 1949 (Oscar et Isodore Hamel, l'Oncle du Tchad)
First appearance in album form in France in 1952
In the Netherlands, in the album: Spaarnestad edition 1959 (see final photo).
The page has been cut in the past (like all plates from this story) and mounted back in its original form later. This was done very neatly.
Some slight discolouration of the paper here and there.
The page will be packaged with great care and shipped by registered post with additional insured value.
The albums (final 3 photos) are shown for reference and are not part of this lot.
This page is numbered 9 and signed by the artist. A museum piece!
