dc.description.abstractHere is an apparently later printing of a work that I have listed under 1850? Here are the changes I have noticed. The price has gone up from 90 Centimes to 95 Centimes. The publisher has changed from Gustave Barba to Georges Barba, and the address has changed to 7, Rue Christine. This printing is also hardbound. The bottom of the last page of the Tof C now acknowledges a printer, and there is an added page of advertisements at the end. Let me include my comments on the apparently earlier printing here. Bodemann #316.1. This unusual publication is a large-formatted 72-page magazine combining all of La Fontaine's fables in two columns with Bertall's twenty-four illustrations. Bertall is a nom de plume for Charles-Albert d'Arnoux. The illustrations are grouped together--usually in groups of three--on 1, 8-9, 16-17 (L'Ane et le petit Chien is one of the best), 24-25, 32-33 (DS and MM are both clever and well executed), 40-41, 48-49 (Les Poissons et le Cormoran is well done), 60-61. The striking illustration for La Besace appears on the title-page and on 1.en_US
