Mauzan Voleurs Ane

1920? X. Mauzan, "Les voleurs et l'âne." "Arrive un troisième larron/Qui saisit maître Aliboron." €6 from Dominique Chapelon, Yronde et Buron, at the Paris Post Card Exhibition, Jan., '05. Extra for €6 from Recto-Verso, Strasbourg, July, '19.  

The shift to children may not be entirely successful here. The scene thus loses most of its serious bearing. Exploiting each possible element of the scene leads to having the ass fight against the lead of the third thief.
