Why We Love This

The Notebooks of Major Thompson by Pierre Daninos. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1955. Second printing, illustrated by Walter Goetz. A comic and charmingly dated attempt to analyze what makes the French so French, from the point of view of the most English of Englishmen. A surprise hit in the 1950s, with classic period jacket and illustrations. Some would say that nothing has changed on either side of the Channel. Dedication on first end page, otherwise well-preserved.
