Hey,

Among the "funny little details", anyone ever spotted this on early versions of Le Diamant de l'Ile Maudite?
watch carefully the title on tape labels ;)

Yes, but this is more common ;)
There's also a version with the "old" address in Paris, and the title corrected.
According to its author, about 12000 copies were sold back then. No idea of how many production batches this can require.

Interesting. The cover looks a bit different in colour (on the right)- or is it faded?

Yes, I don't know if it's because the inlay is getting old, or if it was initially printed in more greenish shades.
Also, the box on the right is a bit smaller than the one on the left (and some other details differ, it's clearly another production batch)
