'How To Travel Incognito' 1951 by Ludwig Bemelmans (Signed w/ Drawing!)

With an original drawing 'Au Revoir' toasting signed by Ludwig Bemelmans.

His funny Thurber-esque drawings also adorn this autobiographical romp of driving across France impersonating a royal. Bemelmans teams up with an aristo on his uppers, Monsieur Le Comte de St. Cucuface. The two tricksters cage, inveigle, and wheedle royal-worshipers out of food and lodging. It's funny, never acerbic or mean, and gives a good change if one has been reading heavy stuff.
