Abstract
Not in Bodemann. Page VIII speaks of some disagreements about the order and quantity of fables that Florian wanted published. Is Bauche claiming here to reproduce the original collection and order of fables? In any case, there are here two books of fables, the first containing twenty-one and the second nineteen fables. The book was originally given out as a school prize in 1916. The special attraction of this edition lies in the cartoons surrounding the texts. These line drawings suggest good things. Some stay close to the text. Most seem to be signed by R. Candide. Favorites include L'Aveugle et le Paralytique (16); Le Singe Qui Montre la Lanterne Magique (24); and L'Enfant et le Mirroir (26). The red leatherette cover mentions both Paul Duval and Elbeuf, but I have no idea what they have to do with the book.
