dc.description.abstractI have a copy of this pair of lovely little volumes and even a second copy of the second volume, but all three are in poor condition. Now I have been lucky enough to find a pair in good condition and apparently complete, including, for example, the MM frontispiece to the second volume. The frontispiece here is DW. As I wrote earlier, this lovely little pair of volumes seems to be a reprinting of Bodemann #135.11, published in 1802. They are small in size, 3½ x 5½. The illustrations seem to be done after Oudry, though, as the Bodemann comment indicates, decorative elements seem to be left out. A good sampling of the illustrations here might include Le Corbeau voulant imiter l'Aigle (98); Le Cheval et le Loup (175), one of the most vigorous of these cartoons; and Le Villageois et le Serpent (202), where the chopped serpent's front half seems to be suspended in mid air!en_US
