Jean-Pierre Claris Florian: Fables (Pictures by Benjamin Rabier)

Jean-Pierre Claris Florian (1755-1794) was a poet and writer from France. He achieved success with poetical and pastoral novels, but today he is most known as an author of fables suited for children. While everybody knows Aesop and (almost everybody) La Fontaine, Florian's work still remains a bit of a mystery. So we are trying to present his most popular work to wider audience. Illustrations are taken from 1936 edition published by Garnier freres (Garnier brothers) from Paris. Illustrations, black and white and color pieces are made by Benjamin Rabier (1864-1939) what them Public Domain. Please enjoy this masterpiece and if you find it interested, share it with your friends.
