New listing on eBay


"Mais où sont les neiges d'antan?" Anyone who went to French school knows this poem by 15th-century poet François Villon. I was one of them. Imagine my surprise, when I grew up and went to (an English-speaking) university and found it part of the curriculum. Sylvie and I had a definite advantage in taking French as part of our course!

Les neiges d'antan means the snows of yesteryear.
