A lovely little find which made me smile... this 1946 vintage children book features some of the most famous Fables from French poet Jean de La Fontain. Every French speaking child has had to learn at least one by heart ! This lovely hardcover book is a collection of 10 poems, among which some of the most famous ones like "Le lièvre et la tortue" (the hare and the tortoise) or "La cigale and la fourmi" (the cigal and the ant). Each poem is illustrated with a lovely painting by Moritz Kennel. A wonderful way for your children to learn French !
This hardcover book is in good conditions, with some yellowing as befits its age and some marks of usage on the cover. The images are bright and the inside pages in good condition.

ORIGINAL : What you will receive is an original hardcover children book from 1946. The cardboard covers and cloth binding show some marks of use (see pictues above). The pages are lightly yellowed but the images are bright and fresh.
SHIPPING : This book ships in a sealed cello bag and a cardboard envelope. It is a little heavier than my usual illustrations, hence the higher shipping costs. If you combine it with another item, I will recalculate the shipping charges precisely and refund extra overcharge if need be.
