Fables de la Fontaine
La Fontaine, Jean de
This book is memorable for me first of all because there was a mix-up over shipment of it. I received another, rather commonplace La Fontaine edition, and Ms. Kerby and I feared that this book might have been lost or misplaced. As a result, I was especially happy to receive it. Then I was happier to look through it. There are about twenty colored illustrations--generally full-page--along with perhaps fifteen smaller black-and-white illustrations and designs. The best of the colored illustrations may be for Le rat et l'huître on 35. The book presents sixty-five fables in all. It once belonged to the St. Mary's High School Library in Edmonton, Alberta.
