dc.description.abstractHere is a hardbound copy in better condition than a board-bound book already in the collection. One has to be careful with this particular book because Renouard published two different editions of Florian in 1812. This copy, like that board-bound copy, represents Bodemann #217.1, with its frontispiece of five cameo illustrations and its six illustrations among the fables. Unhappily, this copy lacks the final illustration, "The Guilty Dog" (194). The cameo at the lower left of the frontispiece group is "Truth and Fable." The full-page lithographs for the fables are unusually precise and detailed and better preserved here than in that other copy. They include "The Blind and the Lame" (60); "The Child, the Mother, and the Opossums" (65); "The Dervish, the Crow, and the Falcon" (115); "The Owl, the Cat, the Goose, and the Rat" (124, sometimes known apparently as "The Collegians"); and "The Trial of the Two Foxes" (171). There is an AI at the rear.en_US
