dc.description.abstractThis 32-page booklet may be one of the easier Pellerin publications to date because it has two ISBN numbers on its back cover. It seems to replicate, except for the ISBN numbers, "Fables de la Fontaine, 4me Série N°1," for which I have guessed a date of 1954. As I wrote there, the best-colored illustrations in this set include the cover illustration, WL (2), "Les Voleurs et l'Ane" (10), and "Le Cerf se voyant dans l'Eau" (23). This booklet offers seventeen well-chosen fables of La Fontaine. The first fable, GA, is illustrated with a black-and-white tableau; the last, "La Guenon, le Singe & la Noix," has an inky black-and-white illustration. The fifteen in between have each a strong full-page colored illustration typical of Epinal work, with large areas of bright simple colors. I have two later versions of that 1954 work, for which I have guessed dates of 1978 and 82. Let's see how this volume compares with those.en_US
