dc.description.abstractThis is one of three pamphlets of the same size, all marked "Série Populaire" and all about 5¾" x 8". This pamphlet has eight fables, with "The Fox and the Bust" pictured and presented on the cover in many colors. As in the others of the series, the texts are always presented. The verso of both covers is plain, and the back cover is a simple pattern of a window without color and with no further markings. The first page presents two fables, each with an illustration: "The Cock and the Fox" and "The Countryman and the Snake." Each of the next three pairs of pages presents one fable with multiple illustrations: TH; "The Monkey and the Cat"; and "The Saddlebag." Then, balancing the first page with its two fables is the last page with its two: "The Peacock and Juno" and "The Serpent and the File." As always in Pellerin booklets, the color illustrations are strong and lively. Among the best are the several human pictures for "The Saddlebag" and the image for "The Serpent and the File." Several of the illustrations are signed "Bac." These pamphlets are hard for me to date!en_US
