dc.description.abstractHere is a second copy of this book, a lovely large-format book in paperboard covers. There are thirty fables of La Fontaine, each introduced with a good Grandville engraving. There are also six full-paged color illustrations by Jules David. If he is the same J. David who did the outstanding edition for Armand Aubree which I have, these editors took different illustrations of his for this book. In fact, the color work is not superior. The six are facing 10 (FC), 20 (FG), 30 (The Wolf Become a Shepherd), 40 (WL), 48 (The Oyster and the Litigants), and 60 (MM). There is a T of C at the front, in fact even before the title-page. I of course had known nothing of this book; now I have found it twice on the Internet! This is not the first time that I have found the better copy for less money than the more worn copy. This Winjhoven copy shows heavy wear on the cover. The title-page gives credit to the chromolithographers de Brun et Cie.en_US
