Abstract
This book is identical internally with the first 32 pages of a Fables de La Fontaine published by the same publisher, Gordinne in Liege. The only internal change is the year at the bottom of 32. That book goes on to include another two volumes, presumably of 16 pages each. A last page of the last volume is missing. That book's cover is an attractive circular image of WC. This book features rather a full-page image of La Fontaine as a marionette-director, pulling the strings of nine animals at once. It has the same constellation of black-and-white and colored art. Like that book, it is squarely in the tradition of other Belgian picture-books and coloring-books. Their titles are Choix de Fables and Fables Choisies. As in the first volume of that book, the pages here are numbered consecutively from 1 to 32. This book is in remarkably good condition, particularly if one considers its history. It seems to have gone from Belgium to Czechoslovakia during some very perilous times! How lucky to find it now!
