dc.description.abstractThe value of these two volumes lies chiefly, I believe, in the twelve aqua-fortis gravures designed by Pierre-Nolasque Bergeret. They often have a medallion inserted within a picture. A list of them, as apparently first published by Bergeret in 1818, appears on Bassy 230; there is also a shorter list in the description of the 1818 edition on Bassy 265. They include 1) a frontispiece of Le Curé et le Mort within TB and MM; 2) Democritus and the Abderites within The Two Cocks and DW (133); 3) The Oyster and the Litigants within FC and The Rat and the Oyster (165); 4) The Shepherd and the King within FK and The Spider and the Swallow (218); 5) The Old Man and the Three Young Men within The Lion and the Gnat, The Bees and the Drones, and The Eagle and the Magpie (264); and 6) Philemon and Baucis (353). Bassy reproduces the illustrations from the frontispiece (86) and 165 (129). T of C and an alphabetical index at the back, followed by a mythological table and a list of celebrated personages. There is then a fifth table of unusual or original expressions by La Fontaine in the fables. The sixth table is of proverbs by La Fontaine. The last appendix contains a list of editions of La Fontaine's fables through 1825. Curiously it does not mention this book's first printing in 1818, but then I guess the presumption is that this book continues or is that edition. Here I do not find a separate illustrated page like that used for the two servants in Volume One. I am certainly glad to find this edition, though a third edition, at this remarkable price!en_US
