dc.description.abstractThis is a delightful large-format book of some 192 pages featuring the fifty-nine miniatures painted by Imam Bakhsh at the court of Lahore from 1837 on. As far as I can understand, these miniatures are now preserved at the Jean de la Fontaine Museum in Château-Thierry. They are exquisite! Let me list some of my favorites: The Crow Wishing to Imitate an Eagle (23); MSA (29); FWT (41); The Horse and the Wolf (42); FG (48, an absolute star!); The Stag Seeing Himself in the Water (53); The Lion, the Wolf, and the Fox (71); The Rat and the Elephant (81); The Wolf and the Hunter (90); CW (103); The Dream of the Citizen of the Mogul's Land (137); and The Sun and the Frogs (169). The introduction and appendices give some of the history of this remarkable set of artifacts. As the opening Avertissement de l'Éditeur points out, the fables that happen to be illustrated here are in many cases not La Fontaine's most famous. T of C at the back. I consider this a very lucky find!en_US
