Ant and Grasshopper Rover Ratisbonne

1905?  La Fourmi et la Cigale.  5 photographic postcards.  Nancy: Rover.  $35 for the set of five cards from Bertrand Cocq, Calonne-Ricouart, France, Sept., '20.

The narrative here deviates from La Fontaine, just as the title is reversed.  Here the ant provides all that the grasshopper needs, but admonishes her to start working.  I have not been able to find the sense of "Vous avez faites maigre chère."
