dc.description.abstract"The specialty of this broken little volume is the full-page reproduction of 76 of Jean-Baptist Oudry's illustrations. The book has a surprising organization. It is divided into thirds, with a list of illustrations and their page numbers at the beginning of each third (9-10; 71-71; 131-132). There is a T of C of all 75 fables at the end of the volume. A first illustration before the first third of the book offers Oudry's frontispiece of Aesop honoring La Fontaine. After the title-page is a full-page portrait of La Fontaine. Some of the Oudry illustrations are marked with a Roman numeral number, which seems not to be the number of the fable here and is certainly not the number in La Fontaine's twelve books of fables. Both covers are separated, as is the first signature. The choice of illustrations to present is good and the reproduction is, for the size of the pages, better than adequate. The back cover is embossed "École Professionelle de l'Etoile." This copy was apparently a school prize."en_US
