This book is almost perfectly identical with one published by Gallery Books in the same year. My suspicion is that Gallery had the American contract and Omega the British contract. As I wrote then, this book puts together two people I have seen extensively elsewhere. The reproductions of Billinghurst are good. He shows occasional touches of imagination, but seems generally to provide a standard picture for a tale. Billinghurst has also been published with illustrations of LaFontaine. I wonder what he really made. These stories do not match with the Hundred Fables of LaFontaine (1983) for which Binnlinghurst's illustrations are also used.
