Abstract
This twelve-page leaflet magazine (7½" x 10¾") along with another of its numbers was one of many pleasant surprises on this European trip. I found it at the last of the many bookstores I visited in the gallery on Rue de la Madeleine. The pleasant owner found these two issues. I enjoy the update on La Fontaine so much that I hunted on the web. I found about six of these colored cover illustrations, all apparently done between 1900 and 1902. I even found another issue that I was able to order online. This issue's illustration is FS. The upper panel shows the stork agape at the meal she is supposed to eat. A rabbit servant looks on as the fox in a gentleman's coat smirks. In the lower panel an outdoor meal with table cloth and duck servant has two characters saying something. The stork asks the bewildered fox "You are not hungry then?" Two crows ask Master Fox if he would not like cheese! The fox himself scratches his head, wondering what to do with food inside a huge narrow-necked flask. The verso of this cover has a discussion of the fable, signed by G.C. This issue is dated December 21, 1901.
