Le Renard et les Raisins

This is a highly colorful die-cut pamphlet about 3⅜" x 6", the seventh of a group of seven more Nilsson pamphlets to be added to our singleton acquisition of four years ago. We seem to have four to go to complete the collection! Its two outside covers are images of the fox from two sides of the wall he grasps as he looks at the coveted grapes. There are again three two-color illustrations inside this one-staple pamphlet of some 12 pages. The centerfold is another lovely piece of art work. It has the fox stretching to reach the grapes. The first image shows the fox looking up at the grapes from a greater distance. The last shows the fox leaving and waving a paw back at the disdained grapes. This pamphlet again offers a prose expansion of La Fontaine's fable. On the last page, one finds La Fontaine's verse text. Lovely work!
