Bénédictine D.O.M.

1910?   Two colored menu forms for Hôtel du Maine, Angers.  FS and WL.  Printed by and for Bénédictine D.O.M., "Liqueur préferée des gourmets."  $14 from Bertrand Cocq, Calonee Ricouart, France, Sept., '18.

The detailed color work on these menu forms is outstanding!  There is plenty of room on the page for "Goussé," the host at the Hôtel du Maine, to write the day's menu on the page.  Both menus offer a short quotation from La Fontaine's text under the image, like the wolf's snarling retort "If it wasn't you, it was your brother!" 





Earlier I had found two menus without the extra local printing for the Hôtel du Maine in Angers.  €8 each.
