Nouvelles Galeries Oudry Cards

1935? 4 numbered cards presenting Les Fables de La Fontaine as engraved by J. B. Oudry.  "Edite par les Nouvelles Galeries, Angers."  $2.50 from Sally Carver, Warwick, RI, through eBay, Jan., '14.

These are high class renditions of Oudry's work on very fine cards slightly larger than 4½" by 6 ½".  The printing of the image indents that portion of each card.  These cards come from an extensive series, as is clear from their numbers.  The verso has title, text, "La Fontaine," and "Edition des Nouvelles Galeries, Angers."
