dc.description.abstractA pretty but, I would say, misguided book. The thirty or so engravings from Grandville are very well presented. The putting together of Grandville, who illustrated LaFontaine, with two translators of Aesop has its problems. The problems emerge, for example, on 83-4 when the textual fable has people and then dogs interrupting the mice at dinner, but Grandville's illustration shows a cat coming through the door. What is that illustration on 43? Does it have anything to do with the facing story of the fox and lion? For all the care that goes into a book like this, someone should have checked the name of the translator! The only other translators I know who have attempted to use Grandville's work for Aesop are Rees and Zipes. T of C at the beginning, AI on 191.en_US
