dc.description.abstractThis is a small (about 3¼ x 5¼) but complete book of La Fontaine's fables. Its unusual feature is its illustrations, printed with a stamp-like quality. The first of these is a full-page frontispiece printed at a ninety degree angle to the typeface on the facing title page. It pictures La Fontaine writing under a tree near some running water. Thenceforth the illustrations are two to a page, and they occur quite frequently. It is a pity that they are generally indistinct. Two of the more distinct images occur on 20bis, namely FS and L'Enfant et le Maître d'école. I have not been able to figure out the numbering system of the images, though the numbers often match the number of a fable within a particular book. The illustrations become less frequent in some of the later books. Notice the broken stamp for one of the two illustrations on 139bis. There is an AI at the back.en_US
