Les Fables d'Esope Phrygien: Traduction Nouuelle. Illustrée de Discours Moraux, Philosophiques & Politiques
(Chez Pierre Rocolet, 1659)
I already have a copy of a 1660 Baudoin. I mention there the Paris edition by du Bray in 1659. Bodemann writes at the end of the comment on that 1659 edition that other copies have three other publishers' names: Rocolet, ...
Esope en Belle Humeur
(Chez François Foppens, 1693)

The Fables of Aesop Paraphras'd in Verse
(William Andrews Clark Memorial Library University of California,William Andrews Clark Memorial Library: UCLA, 1668)
