dc.description.abstractThis book is the fourth distinct version I have found. It has the internal features of the book I have listed under 1949/1956? but it has a different dust-jacket. The dust jacket here includes references to new publications in 1962 but does not have the same data on the colored colophon page at the end as the 1962 printing has. My suspicion is that the publisher first filled his new dust jackets with leftover stock of the old printings, and then turned later in 1962 to newly printed books. As I write in those other places, this is Bodemann 466.1. The special feature of this book of one hundred and five fables is the full-page photolithographs by Auger. I find sixteen in all, including a good frontispiece (5) of La Fontaine and the animals and a good last page of GGE (192). Three others strike me as very good: TT (13); Le Chat, la Belette et le petit Lapin (121); and Le Vieillard & ses Enfants (185). I find the style typical of 50's art: Disneyesque, spirited, sentimental, and colorful. There is a touch of Dufy here. Bodemann, who seems to find only fifteen full-page colored illustrations, is not as positive as I am about this art. Let me quote some of Bodemann's assessment: Die ganzseitigen Darstellungen bilderbuchhaft: Protagonisten meist in voller Bildhoehe mit ein oder zwei detailliert beschriebenen, groesseren Gegenstaenden als Kulissen in Szenen mit zirkusaehnlicher Wirkung; Tiere mit uebertrieben-schelmischer, naiver Mimik in Bewegungsmomenten (Lauf, Sprung o. ae.), Menschen ueberdimensional schmal oder breit, mit nervoeser Mimik und Gestik und emotionsbestimmter Haltung.en_US
