© 1957. Signature sometimes at the end of second strip, sometimes the very end of the page but not on each page, sometimes on both places [Jacovitti 57]. Some sort of page numbering might exist. 30 pgs.
Reprint changes (page altering):
[1962 VERS.]: Possible page numbering emptied or erased. Also the year from signature erased from all but one.
[2007 REPRINT]: See FIN2.
FIN1: Lots of editing. On almost each page's got the first and third strip drawn higher (by local artist) and the other two cut lower! The choosen editing might be related to the room for translated texts.
FIN2: Similar to the Italian reprint (2007). Looks like story was restored from the original art plates.
