dc.description.abstractThis book seems identical with two others for which I guessed a date of 1910. I will include comments on made on them. Here the printer's acknowledgement at the bottom of the final page is Paris.--A. Quantin Imprimeur, 7, rue Saint-Benoit. [1053]. Full text of the fables. There are several illustrations per book. Most are smaller replications of Grandville; I believe that one can generally start to catch the difference from Grandville by watching how much is included around the edges. Grandville's larger scenes included more detail. Six of the illustrations are simply different from Grandville's: LM (II 12), The Ass and the Dog (IV 5), The Doctors (V 12), MM (VII 10), The Cobbler and the Financier (VIII 2), and The Old Man and the Three Young Men (XI 8). On some I cannot find Staal's signature. All but two of these (IV 5 and V 12) are signed, sometimes along with Staal, by an Emouard. There is an AI at the back. Half-leather. Marbled endpapers. This book is in very good condition. Besides that, it turned out to be a real bargain!en_US
