|This humorous and profusely illustrated French book is considered to be an early example of what we might today call a "comic book".
Michel Las Vergnas|
Cosinus is a mathematician who
desperately wants to travel around the world. Unfortunately, many unexpected
mishaps will prevent him to even go out of Paris. But his luggage will,
alone, make a round-the-world trip. The humour of Christophe is still
effective more than one hundred years later.
