dc.description.abstractThis slightly musty book seems to contain the complete fables of La Fontaine with illustrations for perhaps half of them. These occur generally next to the text, with text getting about two-thirds of the page and illustration the other third. Many of them are colored by a young hand. Macaya has a lively cartoon style. The illustrations become more infrequent as the book goes along. Among the best of the illustrations I would rank The Child and the Pedant (25); CW (46); The Donkey and the Lapdog (67); The Old Woman and the Two Maids (84); TB (91); and The Bear and the Gardener (128). Some strips of paper have been applied to 86, 88, 95, and 216. Not only is the title on the title-page -- La Fontaine: Fabulas en Verso Castellano -- different from the title on the cover -- Fabulas Ilustradas La Fontaine -- but the spine has a third title: Fabulas de La Fontaine. The endpapers present a shipful of animals sailing the sea, with a metropolis in the background. There are four other fable books in this publisher's collection, listed on the verso of the title-page. Now there is a challenge for this collector!en_US
