Abstract
With just a few changes, this book reproduces the first edition done by Garnier Frères in 1926; see my comments there. The additions are a front cover by C. Hirlemann, endpapers including the animal figures of Benjamin Rabier, notice before the last page of this 1930 printing by Paul Dupont in Clichy, and a full page at the end of advertisements for Rabier's books. The front cover shows La Fontaine observing a number of different animals, birds, fish, a stagecoach, and even one resting human. Might Grandville have been turning in his grave to have his work surrounded by that of other artists like these?
