M.M.V. Sauvegarde de l'Enfance

1955?  Two numbered postcards using green, red, and black for their images.  Illustrations signed by “M.M.V.”  Campagne pour la Sauvegarde de l’Enfance et de l’Adolescence.  MM (#1) and FS (#5).  $7 each from Bertrand Cocq, Calonne-Ricouart, France, Sept., ’20. TH for €5 from Bartko-Reher OHG, July, '21.

The artistry in these cards is surprisingly similar to that in the series done for the “Semaine Nationale de l’Enfance.”  The verso of each card has a pointed remark to the reader drawn from the fable and the campaign.  For MM it is “Would you have bought Perrette a new pot?” and for FS “Do not fool your children if you want to keep their trust.”  I have found one other card on the web and hope to add it to the series.  Perhaps Bertrand can find me the rest of the series, however large it may be!
