Aesop's Fables in French
(Leypoldt & Holt, 1869)

(Frederick A. Stokes Company, 1908)
A beautiful traditional Aesop that I had never had in my hand before. Excellent condition. Maybe 250 fables printed very nicely two or three to the page with no runovers. The brief versions may sometimes evidence a lack ...
