dc.description.abstractTwo volumes, separately paginated, in one. This copy either is Bassy 29b or is a two-volume printing of the same edition in the same year. Bassy's copy seems to have continuous page numbers. The discrepancy is apparent because Bassy lists the plates with page numbers. After a frontispiece portrait of La Fontaine by Rigaut, there are twelve very nice plates by Jean-Michel Moreau le Jeune, apportioned one to a book. Among the best are OR (84), which suggests two human attitudes, respectively, in its male and female figures enclosed in the angle created by the oak and the reeds. Another strong presentation is Le Villageois et le Serpent (249). Bassy says that this plate is dated, but I cannot find the date. The illustration for MM (292) seems to me to be a classic presentation that I have seen before in some form. Not in Bodemann. Some foxing. Otherwise very good condition.en_US
