Also known as Bundle

Here are a couple of interesting pictures sent to me by a Rasmus Klump fan. Above, a collection of the Glasgow Evening Times Bruin strips. My correspondent writes that there were at least three editions of this book, published by the Evening Times, the Evening Telegraph, and the one above by the Leicester Mercury.

The book is a translation of the first Danish collection of Rasmus Klump strips, recently reissued in a facsimile edition.

Below, a third english language identity for Rasmus Klump - Bundle! This sounds like an attempt at a direct translation of his Danish name. The book was published in 1975 by Collins, London, so actually it's his second english language name, predating the American Barnaby Bear books by four years.

Many thanks to my fellow Rasmus fan for the pictures.
