dc.description.abstractThis is one of the larger cheap canvas-bound Recueil editions I have from the 30's, many of them by E.R.T. and many featuring the work of Urbain Raymond. Here one key feature of Raymond's work, including that on the cover, is that he signs his pictures mirror-backwards. A number of the illustrations seem to repeat from five other such editions that I have, all with one of three titles, either on the covers or inside: Recueil des Fables de La Fontaine, Les belles Fables de la Fontaine, or Fables Choisies de La Fontaine. All are dated to either 1936? or 1950?. In this edition, there are full-colored illustrations of GA (11 and also on the cover); Le Coche et la Mouche (17); Le Gland et la Citrouille (30); Le Laboureur et ses Enfants (46); WL (64); TMCM (92); FS (96); and Le Savetier et le Financier (110). There are also many duochrome illustrations in either orange or blue, perhaps after patterns used in full-color illustrations elsewhere. Apparent repeaters from elsewhere include FG with a proud fox walking away (106), The Swallow and the Little Birds with its dressed birds in the tree's branches (55), WL (64), MM with its dancing eggs (108), and MSA (70). There is a T of C on 116. The order of fables seems to be largely alphabetical, but with many items out of place.en_US
