Gustave Guérin MM Pamphlet

1898 Pamphlet printed by Gustave Guérin & Cie, Paris, offering La Fontaine's text of MM along with three chromolithographs of the fable.  $20 from Bertrand Cocq, Calonne Ricouart, August, '20.

I long considered whether this is a book, a card, or an advertisement.  In the end, the last seemed most appropriate.  I have not discovered these chromolithographs on cards we have.  Bertrand calls this printer rare.  Inscribed 1898.  3½" x 5½".
