'French: Classical Lines', by Harding and Heidenfeld, Batsford 1979, page 48, has this charming intro to what they call the 'Albin-Chatard Attack.'

" 'As Ogden Nash so wisely observed, candy is dandy but liquor is quicker.,

This game is in the illustrative games section. Note after 11...Nc6 reads:

"Now White has only one developed piece - a Knight on the poor square c2 and the whole idea of the Albin-Chatard Attack has been negated."

In the history section, page 13, they call it the Albin-Chatard-Alekhine Attack but have dropped Alekhine from the chapter headings.
