French

My mother studied French at Bennett High School in Buffalo, N.Y., and saved her textbooks; I, in turn, have saved them as well, as much for her neat notes in pencil between the lines as for anything else. But I have always loved the books for themselves as well. In Tartarin de Tarascon by Alphonse Daudet, there are illustrations by Clarence Rowe (above) and Leon d’Emo (below). I share them.
