    • Aesopia 

      Aesop; Novák, Jan; Phaedrus (Filmkunst-Musikverlag. MunichMünchen, 1990)
      This is a valuable addition to the collection about which I cannot say much! See my program Iani Novák Aesopia/Jan Novák Aesopia (1989) for some background comments.
    • Chansons de France pour les Petits Enfants 

      Boutet de Monvel, Louis-Maurice (Gautier-LangereauGautier-Languereau. Paris, 1983)
      This large format book (11¾ x 10½) surprises me. I thought it a reprint of the Plon-Nourrit edition of about 1870, a landscape-formatted book titled Chansons de France pour les Petits Français, with songs including a ...
    • Chansons de France pour les Petits Francais 

      Boutet de Monvel, Louis-Maurice; Weckerlin, J.-B (l'École des Loisirslutin poche de l'ecole des loisirs. Paris, 1870)
      This is a nice simple reproduction for kids of Boutet de Monvel's marvelous work, including the Rat de Ville song. See my copy of the original hardbound version (1870?). The extra copy here has a lighter color cover than ...
    • Chansons de France pour les Petits Francais. 

      No Author (Plon-Nourrit et Cie.. Paris, 1870)
      Here is an extra copy in poor condition. Pages 28-9 present Le Rat de Ville et le Rat des Champs in music with two superb illustrations. The story ends with an invitation to city mouse to come to the country for dinner ...

      Boutet de Monvel, Louis-Maurice; Weckerlin, J.-B (Plon-Nourrit et Cie imprimeurs-éditeurs 8, rue Garancière, Paris -- 6e,. Paris, 1870)
      Pages 28-9 present Le Rat de Ville et le Rat des Champs in music with two superb illustrations. The story ends with an invitation to city mouse to come to the country for dinner tomorrow. Boutet de Monvel's illustrations ...
    • The Frogs Who Wanted a King. 

      La Fontaine, Jean de; Smith, Edward; Zemach, Margot (Four Winds Press: Scholastic Magazines. NY, 1977)
      An ingenious idea, and some ingenious illustrations to match in watercolors. I will try to work one song or slide into a lecture, like the one on the two rats.
    • The Illustrated Book of Songs for Children. 

      Borthwick, Jane (T. Nelson and Sons. New York, 1863)
      This lovely old book was sold in Edinburgh and given as a gift in Gstaad in 1981. Pages 82-3 put FG to a melody, with a poor illustration. The other illustrations are better. The Bee and the Dove on 96-7 is the old fable ...
    • Polichinelle: Old Nursery Songs of France 

      Monsell, J. R (Humphrey Milford: Oxford University Press. London, 1928)
      I had thought that this book was a knock-off of Boutet de Monvel's Chansons de France (1870?), but it turns out that only about seven of the thirty-one songs here are also there. The one fable that is in this book is TMCM ...
    • Traditional Nursery Rhymes. 

      Graham, John (J. Curwen and Sons. GermantownLondon, 1911)
      #46 of this book of tunes is FG, set to the same tune as FM, presented earlier in the volume. The version is nice and clear, identifying the grapes as fine ripe and the fox's exertions as taking an hour. I begin to think ...
