Henry Morin

1960?  Three fable postcards signed by (Henry) Morin.  TT, FG, and WL.  $6 each from Bertrand Cocq, Calonne-Ricouart, France, Sept., '20.

Morin published his great book of fables around 1904, and these scenes are presumably taken from there.  WL, certainly is, with the white rectangle here used for a title there used for the text of the fable.  The double scene of TT is lovely, as is the facial expression of the fox in FG.  One wonders how many there might be in this set….  An added lovely feature of these three cards is that an eager sender scribbled a long message extending across all three cards and a first card before these three.  And the set was never sent through the mail.  There are lots of capitals and exclamation points!
