Abstract
This is a curious and engaging book. It offers seventeen well-chosen fables of La Fontaine. The first, GA, is illustrated with a black-and-white tableau; the last, La Guenon, le Singe & la Noix, has an inky black-and-white illustration. The fifteen in between have each a strong full-page colored illustration typical of Epinal work, with large areas of bright simple colors. Among the best of these is Le Cerf se voyant dans l'Eau (23), in which the stag, dressed colorfully as a human gentleman, leans over the pool. Another follows immediately: I have never seen a more active rat than the one leaping from the table here (25)! The cover is unusual in that it shows La Fontaine not out with animals but seated at a table full of pages of texts and animal illustrations. The name Hachette appears on the cover but not on the inside of the book; might this be a Hachette reprint of an earlier Epinal work?
