Griset, Ernest Henry
160 Classic Lessons in Ethics, Critical Thinking and Common Sense With More Than 150 Colorized Nineteenth-Century Engravings. So says the back cover. It is fascinating for me to see Griset colorized. I wonder what his response would have been. Among the successes here might be the two pictures on the covers, WL and The Man Who Dropped His Axe. Others would be DS (7), The Man and the Snake (12), FC (77), The Thief and the Dog (93), and The Elphant and the Animal Assembly (139). There are more garish results elsewhere. Unusual results come when flesh tones and little else is filled in, as in Aesop and His Fellow Servants (72) and The Sea and the Rivers (79). Here the fables are usually one to a page, sometimes with a text facing an illustration. No fable seems to run over onto a second page. I remain fascinated that Griset ventured to put three foxes onto his illustration for FG, while I think that this fable demands a single fox doing whatever he does (45). There is a T of C after 178.
