Abstract
Here is Paul Veres' excellent facsimile of Lorioux' original work from 1921. The colors are crisp. After all, it is the colors that attracted Paul in the first place. The heron's sense of dignity is wonderfully presented here. Also well done are the various other fish and animals, some unmentioned by La Fontaine, like the butterflies which play around the inactive heron as he waits for the proper time. The title-page comes from Lorioux' entire volume. The back cover reproduces Lorioux' delightful front cover showing La Fontaine sitting between two young children and, with quill in hand, reading his own fables to them. Two mice run away. The inside back-cover includes a picture of Lorioux and cites his edition of 1929. I notice now what seems true of all six copies: Hachette on the inside back-cover is called not a Librairie but a Librarie. Eight pages.
