Jean de La Fontaine
This oversize (9½" x 12½") book is really a collection of eight pages of figures to cut out and mount as paper scenes, with following pages of card bases for the eight mounted fable scenes. About five elements per page have tabs that one places through slots in the elliptical base to make the fable scene. The color work is vigorous, and the cut-outs are exact. I am not sure that the cardstock is firm enough to handle young fingers manipulating the tabs. A text of the fable and instructions for the scene are on the front of each broadside. The nearby farmer in FS and the extra layer for the lion's muzzle are lovely touches! The fables presented here are: Le Loup et l'Agneau, la Cigale et la Fourmi, le Lion et le Rat, le Corbeau et le Renard, la Grenouille qui veut se faire aussi grosse que le Bœuf, le Renard et la Cigogne, le Rat de Ville et le Rat des Champs, and Le Lièvre et la Tortue, The individual pages here are also offered singly as advertisements for Calscorbat, with the advertiser's name appearing in the open spaces at the top left and write. The verso of each separate page in that offering is also used to advertise Calscorbat. We have several of these unbound pages.
