dc.description.abstractWe already have two copies of this book in the collection. But here is a third, differently bound, perhaps crisper and clearer in its illustration pages. As I wrote of the first two, I find this book disappointing. It is large, with gilt page-edges. It contains some 113 full-page illustrations by Louis Eugène Lambert (1825-1900), but most of them seem to me simple, direct, dull, and predictable. Some are in fact sketchy. A typical illustration might be that for "Le Renard et le Bouc" (127). Some better illustrations include a symbol overhead that suggests the irony of the fable; thus in FC (7) a censor blows smoke. Similarly above DW (14), there is a bird escaping from its cage. Among the better illustrations are those for the stag and vine (261), the stag seeing itself in water (285), and the wolf and the hunter (444). It is unusual to picture TT after the fall (515).en_US
