La Fontaine, Jean de
Includes the fables presented in the Arnaud edition (1970?) among its forty-three. The art is again big and bold, and the additional illustrations here seem to me livelier than the repeaters. The best among them are of the council of rats (8-9), the fox and the goat (10-11), the two goats (24-25), and the fox and the wolf (92-93). There is a delightful world-seeking rat with his luggage looking at his first oyster on 16-17. AI at the front. The extra copy changes only the verso of the last printed page, namely to add the information that the book was printed in July, 1971. I have accordingly changed the date of the listing from 1970? to 1971. The extra copy is in poorer condition, with a taped binding.
