Signed 'Marten Toonder' in the first plate. This copy was most likely not drawn (or signed) by Toonder but by one of the cartoonists in the studios. 11 x 26 cm.

*From the collection of Miepie van Baarle-Neuhaus and Nic van Baarle. **Although signed Marten Toonder strips were possibly created by or in cooperation with one of the other cartoonists at the Studios. *** Tom Puss strips from this period are extremely hard to find; the copies that did survive time have been archived. In increasingly rare cases like here strips or rejected versions of a strip are discovered at the legacy of an employee of the studios. This strip being a copy of the original that was used for publishing, and which is archived in the Literature Museum in the Hague.
