dc.description.abstractHere is Paul Veres' excellent facsimile of Lorioux' original work from 1921. The colors are crisp. After all, it is the colors that attracted Paul in the first place. The cover may be one of Lorioux' most popular illustrations: the two rats march gingerly from left to right in contrasting clothing. Almost every illustration has some element -- a tail, a hat, a banana, a leaf -- that just escapes the ever-present picture frame. My favorite illustration fits the line I will let you imagine the life of these two friends at the city meal. The city rat flies through the air clinging to a half-peeled banana while his country cousin does a cartwheel on a banana peel. The following several pictures portray good moods: pleasant torpor, then panic, and then flight. Enjoy the contrasting shoes of the two rats and the cigar of the city rat. The title-page comes from Lorioux' entire volume. The back cover reproduces Lorioux' delightful front cover showing La Fontaine sitting between two young children and, with quill in hand, reading his own fables to them. Two mice run away. The inside back-cover includes a picture of Lorioux and cites his edition of 1929. I notice now what seems true of all six copies: Hachette on the inside back-cover is called not a Librairie but a Librarie. Eight pages.en_US
