Cosa c'è nell'illustrazione: Gargantua, son of the giant Grandgousier and his wife Gargamelle, is a character created by François Rabelais. A giant himself, Gargantua was bigger and taller than any of his ancestors to such an extent that it was impossible to find a nurse who could fulfill his needs. A herd of some seventeen thousand cows had to be kept to feed him. The caption reads in the original French: Gargantua dans son berceau. — dessin de J.-J. Grandville.
