Abstract
Here is a second version of the same work and, by all indications, the earlier. I have it as done in 1982. (I also have the first copy of No 1 for both times, and the No 1 of a 1978 printing.) Though this copy bears no date, someone has handwritten in pencil 5-8-55 135 fr. A Wetterwald. I take it that this is perhaps a 1954 edition or thereabouts. This edition has a yellow paper cover featuring the goat and the fox. The same illustration appears again on 6. The mention of a 4me Série is new, though the #2 fits with the other version. The best-colored illustrations in this set include Le Corbeau Voulant Imiter l'Aigle (17), Le Lion Malade et le Renard (21), and L'Oiseleur, l'Autour & l'Alouette (31). This 32-page booklet offers seventeen well-chosen fables of La Fontaine. Again two black-and-white illustrations bracket fifteen full-page colored illustrations. The special attraction of Pellerin illustrations has something to do, I believe, with large areas of strong, bright, simple colors. I take it that these are all reprints by Epinal of an earlier work of its own.
