Dix Fables d'Animaux: Illustrations en Silhouettes et Morales humoristiques aux dépens des Humains
Sixteen pages of excellent two-colored silhouettes presenting ten animal fables and a human application for each. Thus FG shows other children agitated while one boy receives an award from a teacher (1). To illustrate the stag caught in the branches after seeing itself in the water, we see an all-dressed-up young lady in full, even spherical, skirt caught on a fence in front of a charging bull, while the girl in everyday clothes has skipped free (5). DS shows a man (Chinese?) bringing his money-sack to the East Indian company to invest it (11). LM shows a little servant holding an umbrella for a society-woman on a rainy day (15). T of C at the back. Not in Bassy or Bodemann.
