Aîné (1841-1909) French actor of unusual range and versatility. Coquelin studied
acting at the Conservatoire in 1859 and in 1860 made his debut at the Comédie-Française.
At the age of 23 he was a full member of the company. Mascarille in Molière's
Étourdi and Figaro, comic valets of brilliant exuberancy, were his greatest parts
in the classical repertory. (www.britannica.com)

containing portraits, biographies, signed testimonials and some of Cappiello's
finest caricatures of contemporary celebrities. You might be asking yourself just

and the Queen of Madagascar have in common? The answer is quite simple: They all
love Lefevre-Utile biscuits, of course" (Rennert,
