Fourteen French matchboxes, each giving the title and an illustration for a fable of either Jean de La Fontaine or Florian. The set seems identical with that I have listed under French matchbox covers. 13 Euros for thirteen matchboxes from Romuald Outrequin, Toulon, France, through Ebay, Jan., '02. These join a set I had bought from Mr. Outrequin earlier.
What a pleasure to see covers I had found in two other places now on their boxes. The Fox and the Grapes , The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse , and "La Taupe et les Lapins" repeat from there. Strong new designs here include "La Belette Entrée dans un Grenier," The Frogs Wanting a King, "Le Heron," and "Le Renard et le Bouc."
