dc.description.abstractSee my version dated 1965 and otherwise almost identical. They share a 1962 copyright by O.D.E.J., Paris. As I write there, this is a large-format children's book, now the third distinct set of work I have by Cremonini (see The Fables of Aesop and La Fontaine in 1958 and 1961, both by Fratelli Fabbri). Here Cremonini's first contribution lies in the colorful designs on the pages given to texts. There are also six full-page color illustrations in a distinct style (perhaps Maraja's?). From these latter, I like particularly the sparkling-eyed town and country mice sitting at the country meal. Have I seen some of this Maraja work before? Cremonini's work also includes the monochrome blue designs that appear along the way. Cremonini typically has fun with the figures, like the armed mice on the design next to Le Cheval et l'Ane or the insects around the scene of WL. There are also good faces on both main characters in OR. Thirteen fables. T of C at the back. This book is in better condition than the 1965 copy. The different date is to be found at the bottom of the last page. The two books also differ in the issues in the series that are announced on the last page. This 1964 copy skips numbers 4, 5, and 7 out of fourteen. The 1965 version skips 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, and 12 out of twenty-two. The series not only grew fast. It also went out of print fast!en_US
