La Fontaine, Jean de
A surprise sitting on the kids' shelf. Actually fifty-one fables from seventeen fabulists, most brief and illustrated with nice vignettes. The best art is of the ass and the thieves (13), GGE (28), the travellers and the thieves (39), and the two mules (43). Is it just recognition or the better choice of subjects that perks me up when I come to LaFontaine's fables? Pencil notes. AI at the back.
