"Ludwig Bemelmans, as these words are written, is somewhere in Ecuador, winding slowly on horseback toward the head-waters of the Amazon. When he reaches the coast some weeks from now, he will board a small tramp steamer named the Comedian and sail for the Galapagos Islands. What he will do after that, no one, not even himself, has the faintest idea. When Ludwig Bemelmans first came to America he worked as a busboy in a Chinese restaurant. Some years later he was the proprietor of the Hapsburg, one of the ftnest restaurants in New York. Recently he has devoted ail the time he could spare from his wife and his daughter to writing and illustrating. Hansi and The Golden Basket are two books from his pen whose charming individuality has endeared them togrown- ups as well as to the children for whom they were made. The studio of Jascha Heifetz and the stage decor for Noah stand to his credit, as do articles, stories, and illustrations in Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Town and Country, Fortune, and Story."
