dc.description.abstractHere is a second copy of this beautiful book. In keeping with my usual procedure, I include second copies of numbered books. This collection already includes #2221 of 3500, found perhaps at Magers and Quinn in 1995. Now comes this copy for the astounding price of $7.22! As I wrote then, I am surprised to see the French publishing industry able to do a book like this so soon after the war. The aquarelles are unfortunately almost completely devoid of narrative content; they end up often no more than pleasing pictures, I fear. Thus the best of them are those that move into some human content, especially the cover picture of MSA, the frontispiece of La Fontaine under a tree listening to a crow, the drunk slumped over a picnic bench (98), and the peasant with a frozen snake (192).en_US
