dc.description.abstractThis is a quarto card folder with illustrated paper covers. It contains six double-folded blue pages with a title on the front of each page. The center pages have text and full-page colored illustrations, with more text following on the last page. A seventh card is a letter to children about the fables. The fables presented are FC, GA, TH, Le Rat qui s'est retiré du monde, OF, and FG. The cards themselves are in excellent condition, while the card folder shows some wear. The colored art is lively! For a great sample, enjoy Le Rat qui s'est retiré du monde and the cover's presentation of all the characters. Each fable also gets a lively multi-colored initial and a monochrome tailpiece. The best initials may be the exploding frog in the U and the M on which the crow perches. My favorite tailpiece shows the victorious turtle. This is so close to a book that I think it most naturally belongs among the books in this collection. My, the beautiful things one finds!en_US
