Titre de passage vers les Cités Obscures
François Schuiten - 1995

These prints belonged to a whole concept around the Obscure Cities which was never completed. There were to be 4 signed reproductions carried out at the time (circa 1993) but it is believed that only 3 of the 4 were actually printed.

The 4 signed reproductions were to be:

1) 1993. Titre de passage 1. Bruxelles-Mylos. 42x60 cm. Offset. 300 ex. n/s. (Inédit pour la station Porte de Hal). Repris en CP.

2) 1994. Titre de passage 2. Du Botanique à Calvani. 42x60 cm. Offset. 500 ex. n/s. (Le rêve de Nadar a Michel Ardan).

From the sellers description:
This publisher's broadside announces the imminent serial publication of Verne's new story, "Michael Sanderf", which, when the paper began publication 6 August 1885, was under the work's true name, "Mathias Sandorf". The story concluded November 5, 1885. Other research reveals that the work was published serially by Le Temps, which may be the source for the Times' preliminary announcement of "Within the next two week, the Troy Times will receive for publication, serially, the advance sheets of an original story by that famous French writer of Romance, Jules Verne ." Whatever the source, 19th C. publisher's broadsides
