dc.description.abstractHere Imagerie d'Épinal brings their strong sense of color to bear on illustrating eight of Florian's fables in a sixteen-page pamphlet some 7¼ x 10. The pamphlet is in very good condition. Animal heads, human bodies, and human clothing make for strong images. The first image has the dog answering the complaining sheep: It is better to suffer evil than to do it. The Charlatain has a completely human picture and story: his all-powerful powder turns out to be . . . the great encyclopedia! A dog is sold and returns to his first owner, only to his chagrin to be returned to his new owner. An old cat friend chides Did you think that it was for our sake that they loved us? The famous story of the purse found by one of two travellers and claimed not as ours but mine leads to the good moral: He who thinks only of himself in times of good luck has no friends in times of bad luck. One monkey tells another, who has just thrown a good nut away frustrated, that without a little work there is no pleasure. We have to crack the nut. Two geese criticize a peacock's limbs, only to be told that their limbs are uglier and that they will never have his tail. A young man reacts against his father's promotion of traditional virtues. I would like to get rich without vice and without work. The wise father answers Be a simple imbecile. I have seen many of them succeed! As always, art from Imagerie d'Épinal is lovely!en_US
