Le nouveau Cherche et trouve de Little Urban, aussi coloré, déjanté et diablement amusant que le premier (A la recherche de la Carotte bleue), en très très grand format pour le plaisir de tout-petits !!! (Et des plus grands, qui trouvera en premier ?)
This particular find fascinated me. It had apparently been meant originally for an account or memorandum book, having only blank, imprinted pages - some three hundred or more, I guess. However, nearly all of them were covered from margin to margin with minute little faded squiggled; I recognized them as a Renaissance script, though a poorly formed one. The writer apparently had been a man of little schooling, though obviously possessed of a great desire to write. No one, not even a specialist, reads 15th or 16thCentury Spanish scripts with ease, especially squatting in an attic with only a dim flashlight for illumination; however I could make out enough of the cramped, jammed-together writing to decide that the book was a journal or a chronicle of some sort. It appeared to be a record or diary of a journey through some part of the New World, America, not long after it was discovered by Columbus.
