Abstract
I knew and admired Baudoin for her Fables de la Fontaine, published by Casterman in 1955. I recognized her style immediately. I found a 1987 reprint of the 1958 original early in an afternoon of shopping the Buchinists along the Seine. Later in the afternoon I found this copy of the 1955 original edition. As in her La Fontaine, Baudoin's illustrations show a great use of color. The cover illustration -- Renard with a fish -- gives a good sense of Renard's mischievous character. That character continues to be a focus when Baudoin illustrates Renard himself. She also does a good job of showing the plight of his wounded, bandaged victims. The cover here uses an older script for the title and artist. It also specifies that the illustrations are aquarelles. There are green endpapers here, not to be found there. There are some fingerprints on the title-page. And the last page includes a 1966 that may indicate a particular printing of the 1958 edition.
