dc.description.abstractThis issue's first page presents a half-page wood-engraving titled "Le Héron." Here a tall male aristocrat with sword is being offered an apple by a barefoot (colonial?) child. To judge from comparison with the "straight" fable representation on 168, this scene shows the heron needing to eat a snail. The stance and even the nose of the male figure echo the stance and beak of the heron. The two human figures are pictured near the water, with a church steeple and perhaps sailing ships in the background. This issue is sixteen pages long. L'Illustrateur des Dames et Demoiselles: Journal des Soirées de Famille seems to have been known as a "Journal de Mode." It carried items of interest to women, particularly fashion. Its masthead presents the same engraving of women gathered around sewing, piano playing and singing, reading, and painting. Pages are three columns wide. This issue is from March 22, 1863.en_US
