Here is a thirty-two page pamphlet that I had not found for years and then found twice within one week. It features twelve full-page colored illustrations signed something like Abbé or Alli. It also includes frequent black-and-white images integrated with the text. Between the two forms of illustration, almost all of the thirty-three fables are illustrated somehow. The Skoob copy is in better condition but looks suspiciously recent, and so I will keep both copies in the collection. The colored illustration for TH here has the fox at the finish line brandishing a written slip of some sort (7). The owner of the goose with golden eggs (28) has a great gesture with extended arms.
