Materne Dutch

1950? Fables et Contes Adaptés par Materne. 2 cards with La Fontaine's French and a Dutch translation on the back. "Fabels en Vertellingen Aangepast door Materne." On the front of each is an illustration involving Materne food products. $8 apiece at Foster City, Feb., '97.

On the first is a fox who seems to have got a jar of candied fruits from the crow in the tree. On the second, a stork cannot get the jar of jam out of the vase; a fox looks on. Curiously enough, the picture side of each card speaks of "De Sprookjes en Vertellingen" (my emphasis) rather than, as on the back, "Fabels en Vertellingen."
