dc.description.abstractWe have a copy of very similar pamphlet, but several things are different. Might it be that this new copy is a yet more original version? This cover includes red fill just inside the narrow frame around the illustration. It lacks the "6me Série" on the top. Though it is hard to make out, it has a different label at the bottom of the front cover. The obscuring factor is a dealer's seal from P. Rolandi in London. The back cover removes the "Pellerin & Cie-Imps-Edits" at the bottom and again fills this space with red. The empty space at the center of the back cover it includes a rather long "En Vente" advertisement mentioning four La Fontaine numbers and other publications. Internally this copy has a "Fables de La Fontaine" at the top of the first page and many other pages, which is lacking on the first page of the other copy. The typesetting of the first page is also different. The colored illustrations are brighter than in the other copy. The cape of the wolf who has become a shepherd has stripes that were not differentially colored in the other version. The fox visiting the sick lion has exchanged the colors of the two parts of his lower covering. The color scheme of the leggings of the left-hand man in OR has changed. If I were looking for evidence that these beautiful illustrations are hand-colored, I guess I just received it! The seven illustrations here include "Les Deux Mulets," OF, TH, "Le Corbeau Voulant Imiter l'Aigle," and the three mentioned. There is a lovely redoing of "Le Corbeau Voulant Imiter l'Aigle" on the front cover. This pamphlet, like the other, adds one pictureless fable before (DLS) and one after (BF) the seven illustrated fables. 7¼" x 10". This copy cost less than 10% of the other copy!en_US
