dc.description.abstractIronically, this is the book that has pushed me to gather together our books by Pellerin of Épinal. The irony is that this book is technically not by Pellerin. "La Maison Olivier-Pinot" existed in Épinal from 1875 to 1888, at which time it was subsumed by Pellerin. This book, so typical of what Pellerin would later produce -- and produced earlier? -- has Olivier-Pinot on its cover exactly where Pellerin puts its name, for example, in "Fables de La Fontaine 3me Serie," a reprint later enough to have an ISBN number. This very frail booklet of 16 pages contains the following illustrated fables: "The Oyster and the Litigants"; "The Monkey and the Cat"; "Fortune and the Child"; "The Partridge and the Roosters"; "The Countryman and the Serpent"; "The Stag and the Vine"; "The Cobbler and the Banker"; and "The Dog Who Carries His Master's Lunch." "The Fox and the Bust" and "Death and the Unhappy Man" are included but not illustrated. The illustrations are bright and lively. Does it fit that these Olivier-Pinot illustrations occur seldom elsewhere in the properly Pellerin booklets and books that we have? Not in Bodemann.en_US
