dc.description.abstractThis large format book (11¾ x 10½) surprises me. I thought it a reprint of the Plon-Nourrit edition of about 1870, a landscape-formatted book titled Chansons de France pour les Petits Français, with songs including a musical version of La Fontaine's Le rat de ville et le rat des champs. It has that text on 74-75 but this book is no copy of that earlier edition whose title has a different final word. This version does not mention J.B. Weckerlin, who did the arrangements. And the selection of songs is different. Some are repeaters from that earlier edition, and their illustrations follow the same patterns, but those illustrations are differently colored here and differently finished. Compare the wine-caraffe on the city table or the dresses for Mon per' m'a donné un mari (60-61). Now I am curious to see if this book is a reproduction of another early edition. Gautier-Langereau's copyright for this edition is 1971. As in that earlier edition, Boutet de Monvel's illustrations are superb throughout. They profit from the larger format and fresh coloring.en_US
