dc.description.abstractThis may be the first time that I am aware of in which the bookseller was also the publisher! Beurtheret's numerous full-page illustrations are all signed in 1990. They are done in crayon or chalk or some other form of pastel. Among the best are FS (25), DLS (28), The Mountain Giving Birth (33), The Peacock Complaining to Juno (66), and The Hare and the Frogs (97). The reader finds a big surprise on 120 when there is a section of fables of Aesop! These present generally thumbnail-size reproductions of the earlier illustrations alongside the Aesopic texts, though there are also some new, full-page illustrations as well. Beurtheret does not hide his dependence on earlier French illustrators like Grandville.en_US
