Rabier Rat Retire

1905? Benjamin Rabier, "Le Rat qui s'est retiré du monde." Chocolate Lombart, Paris. €12 from Les Larmes d'Éros, Éditions Astarté at Paris Post Card Exhibition, Jan., '05.

Instead of living in a big Dutch cheese, the hermit rat here lives in a tin of fine chocolate from Lombard. As with the other Rabier card I have found, this one was expensive. It came from a dealer in erotic cards who had proclaimed that he had nothing to offer me. It always pays to search!
