dc.description.abstractThis collection already has one book, Select Fables of La Fontaine with English Notes, from 1864. This book is quite distinct. That book offered 120 of La Fontaine's verse fables with extensive English notes. This book offers 110 fables labeled as fables amusantes. These fables are told in prose, not verse. As in that other book, there is an AI at the beginning. The earlier book's preface was signed at Brighton in 1857. This book's preface is signed in Paris in 1861. It refers to all my former works. Its title-page gives a date of 1880. The title-page proclaims with an index of all the words at the end of the work. That is, the fables are followed by a general index of words that occur more frequently and then a particular index of words with English synonyms fable by fable. These are presented not as a list but in running prose form, perhaps to save space. There are idiomatic helps among these but there are no grammar comments anywhere. Advertisements at the end give a page each to at least six of Gasc's works and then sixteen pages to other Bell publications. Bell and Daddy, Fleet Street has become G. Bell and Sons, Covent Garden. Whittaker and Company is not now involved. Brown cloth covers.en_US
