On June 14  1940  Hans and Margret Rey fled Paris as the German army invaded the city. Escaping on bicycles  they took only winter coats and four picture books strapped to the racks. Among those books were the watercolors and a rough text for Fifi  later known to the world as Curious George. However  when Curious George was actually published in the United States in 1941  these original watercolors were not used for the printing. Hans Rey was required by his editor to redraw the entire book  creating preseparated art  so that costs would be minimal. The Reys retained the original art and would  on rare occasion  treat carefully chosen friends and collectors to George as he was first envisioned in Paris those many years ago. During their lifetimes they parted with only five pieces of the extraordinary art. For this edition  the original Curious George drawings have been retrieved and reassembled  using modern reproductive techniques.
