Abstract
Alp Gencata writes to me that this is the first La Fontaine book in Turkish, printed six years after the Turkish alphabet found general use. There are forty-five fables on 95 pages. This book opens with a T of C, photocopied portrait of La Fontaine, and a two-page introduction. The black-print fables are nicely illustrated with red designs, often one before and one after each fable. I have the sense of having seen them somewhere before; what we find here is less stolen and more imitated, I believe. There are also several simple copyings from an offshoot of Oudry and other famous illustrators (35, 67, 87). The cover in red, green, and brown has La Fontaine seated before a lake with animals surrounding him. The series Okuyacaginiz Kitaplar is listed on the back cover, where this La Fontaine volume is fifth in order.
