French engraving from Jean La Fontaine, 'Contes et nouvelles en vers'. Originally published in the 1760s, this is a mid 19th century impression on wove paper.

The artist, Charles-Dominique-Joseph Eisen, is best known for his illustration designs and vignettes, and most famously for these depictions for Fontaine.
