Fables de la Fontaine, Tome Second
(P. Didot l'ainé et Firmin Didot, 1799)
This second of two volumes completes a set started nine years ago. The match with the first volume is not exact, even apart from the fact that this book has lost its covers. While much of the title-page is identical with ...
