dc.description.abstractHere is a curious little book which I happened to pick up because I wanted the books with which it was joined on eBay. It is a standard pair of French paperback volumes bound together in a leather cover, offering the first and last six books, respectively, of La Fontaine's fables. There is a lexicon, AI, and TofC at the back of either volume. A portrait of La Fontaine and a picture of his home are the books' only ornamentation. The surprise comes in that this was a wartime production done by a press in Cairo for a society in Beirut. The press in Cairo is the Imprimerie de l'Institut Français d'Archéologie Orientale. Fables get around and persist even in hard times! The French will have their La Fontaine, even when wars are going on. At one euro, the price was right.en_US
