dc.description.abstractBodemann's descriptions, done by Metzner, are helpful. The 245 half-page illustrations of fables in the two volumes are in part after Oudry, but with different interpretations of the figures. Menschen grob in zeitgenössisch bürgerlicher Kleidung. Notice the unusual women's hairdos! Tiere oft maniriert; meist vor romantischen Naturlandschaften oder schlichtem Interieur im Stil der Zeit. It first appeared in 63 separate installments; the resulting unsystematische Folierung means that page numbers are deceiving. The copper plate engravings seem monumental, to be sure, but, after Oudry and Bewick, they seem a bit off, a strange combination of high detail and cartoon. Among Gouget's best efforts in this second volume might be The Priest and the Dead Man (VII 11); The Bear and the Lover of Gardens (VIII 10); The Ass and the Dog (VIII 17); The Two Dogs and the Dead Ass (VIII 25); The Wolf and the Fox (XI 6); and The Fox, the Wolf, and the Horse (XII 17). There is a T of C for the last six books at the end.en_US
