According to this page, there were 4 coloured plates in the original 1931 book. Why are they missing from the English Fac-Simile of 2002 which had that same cover?

Those 4 coloured plates look like they're from the 1946 revision of Tintin in the Congo, not the original 1931 book. That's my guess anyway.

I don't believe the colour plates were in the original 1931 book. I think they were added to the later (1937?) Casterman republishing of the black and white album.

The colour plates are present in the 2004 English facsimile, with the Ford model-T cover.

You are absolutely correct. I made some research and found this out. That English book seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth though. All I can find is the one with the original cover. What's making my search even harder is that both books have an identical ISBN (!!!)

If anyone knows where I can get this from, please let me know http://www.lastgasp.com/d/28307/

What exactly are these color plates?
