The letters of the Genevan author Rodolphe Töpffer (1799-1846) reveal the humour of the Histoires en estampes, charm of the Nouvelles genevoises and spontaneity of the writing and drawings in the Voyages en zigzag. Jacques Doin, president of the Société d'études töpfferiennes in Geneva for twenty years, has devoted himself to transcribing and annotating approximately 1500 existing letters. They reveal the engaging personality of a writer of the first half of the XIXth century, a teacher of Genevan traditions and boarding-school master, the inventor of an art form prefiguring the comic strip, an art critic and forefather of alpine painting in Switzerland. Volume I contains the letters that Töpffer and his friends and relatives exchanged during his stay in Paris. It was at this time that his poor eyesight forced him to give up painting and that he turned to teaching.
