dc.description.abstractHere is the second of three binders containing together ninety-six cards measuring 6¾x4¼ with approximately 190 signed prints, almost all two prints to a card. The eBay seller writes that the three binders/volumes are from a museum de-acquisition from the early 1800’s. The set came from an 87 year-old collector. The museum professionally mounted all the illustrated pages onto conservator board. More exactly, what is mounted on the conservator boards is not the pages but the excerpted illustrations, about ninety-five illustrations and about 95 endpieces. The book from which these excerpted illustrations come is apparently the second volume to Claude Joseph Dorat's Fables ou Allégories Philosophiques of 1772. Many of the subjects in this second binder could easily be fable subjects; I am surprised that not more of them are standard groupings of characters that would give away a La Fontaine fable. An early card showing peacocks in both pictures could be illustrating BF. The next card has to be The Bear and the Bees. Among the endpieces, one of the most dramatic here is approximately the seventh card: a prisoner runs away with his burst chains still on his limbs. Another illustration a few cards later uses a dog and a great deal of dead poultry to illustrate Abstinet esuriens as a motto. Early on is another illustration that could be picturing Two Doves. Might that barnyard scene be CJ? The second-to-last card dramatizes Ant and Dove.en_US
