dc.description.abstractThis is the second copy of this book; it has a problem of spine separation. Here is one of three books in uniform format from Alfo. The other two are Fabeln nach Äsop and Deutsche Fabeln aus dem 16. und 18. Jahrhundert. All have a canvas binding, colored paper covers with a colored illustration at the center, and 32 pages. Here a T of C at the beginning announces fourteen fables. Each fable has a two-page spread. On the left page is a verse rendition of La Fontaine. On the right is a frame of black-and-white designs above and below a colored illustration of the fable. The frame material above and below is like the work of Benjamin Rabier: playful, distorted, funny. Thus for the acorn and pumpkin philosopher of the first fable, we find a huge pumpkin virtually burying his face. We find rain coming down on the dog forced out of his home, but no rain coming down on the bitch who dispossessed him with her brood (11). For SS, we find two beasts and their owner all streaming water down onto the ground (29). The ox laughing at the frog on 31 looks like he has been copied straight out of Rabier. The colored pictures insides the frames are good but less spirited. Perhaps the best of them shows the horse kicking the doctor wolf who was going to heal his hoof (21).en_US
