Phaedri Fabularum Aesopiarum Libri Quinque
(Apud Joannem Janssonium à Waesberge,Hamburg: Gothofred Schultzen and Amsterdam: Joannes Janssonium a Waesberge., 1673)
There is a nice French translation immediately after the text of each fable. Copious notes. Guyeti's additional notes begin on 248. They are in French and seem to include some Greek. A steal for the price!

(Apud Johannem Janssonium à Waesberge & viduam Elizei WeyerstraetJansson Westberg and Vidua Elzaeus Weyerstraet?, 1667)
This exquisite book lacks a title page and 177/78. Besides, 179 is misprinted as 197. It remains for me an exquisite mystery book. If it were not for the fact that it seems to end on 400, I would think that it is either ...

Ad Iambum Ut Carolum Pererium V. Cl. admoneat Fabulam iamdudum promissam in lucem edere
(Andreae Cramoisy, 1686)

The Fables of Aesop Paraphras'd in Verse
