Abstract
This is a grand livre! It is about 10½ x 14 in size, and it has thirty-five fables on 147 pages, followed by a T of C. It includes the illustrations I already knew from two of Dosimont's books for Hemma: Jean de La Fontaine: Fables Choisies (1994) and Jean de La Fontaine: Jolies fables en musique (1997). Those individual fable illustrations are supplemented by others here, and now there are some twenty-five other fables illustrated. Dosimont's work is again lively. He takes a great perspective on Le petit Poisson et le Pêcheur (22) by looking up from the depths of the lake to see the bottom of the fisherman's boat. For DS (79), the prey is not the usual piece of meat but a live duck, whose image in the water haunts the dog as the duck flies away. The book comes back many times to a lovely little design of paper, inkwell, feather, and book--the last time on the two-page spread given to La Fontaine himself on 146-7.
