Liebig 1892 GA

1892 Grille und Ameise (Nach Gleim). Liebig Company's Fleisch Extract.  Six numbered cards, each with two to four lines of rhyming German verse on the picture.  Lie0625.  $49.95 from Kyle DeRoy, Denver, CO, through eBay, Oct., '06

Each scene puts a can or jar of Liebig's meat product in one of the lower corners. The last two cards I had already found advertising Aux Deux Passages in Lyon.  As I comment there, I have never before seen the ant dance, supposedly in mockery of the cicada, as the former sends away the latter.
