dc.description.abstractBodemann #576.1. Marie Hugo's illustrations seem very familiar, but I cannot find them elsewhere in this collection. The comments in Bodemann are, as often, illuminating. There are fourteen full-page colored illustrations, namely a frontispiece for each volume and an illustration for each of the twelve books in the two volumes. As Bodemann comments, these colored illustrations are naïve in the style of Rousseau, their animals' forms disproportionate, and the movements sometimes grotesque. One of my favorites shows the bear about to crash the rock down on the fly on his sleeping friend's cheek (77). Besides, there are some 53 endpieces that are scherenschnittartig. One of the most evocative of these shows the winning cock looking anything but a winner as a vulture carries him aloft (43). Another good silhouette shows the cat up a tree while the fox rushes madly by (145). The volumes are beautifully bound in full leather with a plasticene dust-jacket. Each has two ribbons for marking one's place! Text and commentary! At the back, one finds first notes (327-438) and an iconography (439-52) offering especially illustrations of the fables by prominent artists in the tradition (Chauveau, Oudry, Grandville, Doré, and Chagall). Finally, there is a T of C for this volume on 455-58. Despite my best efforts, these two volumes smell like an old bookstore! They are still a treasure!en_US
