dc.description.abstractBodemann #202.3. Good condition. There are sixty-two fables on 210 pages in this little (4 x 6½) book. Besides the frontispiece of Fable and Truth, matching the first fable by Florian, there are fifteen plates, each with four illustrations. The third-to-last fable, The Dervish, has two illustrations, and the last two fables have none. There is a T of C at the back. The first edition was in 1805, and the second in 1809. The title-page continues with this description: Avec des explications morales et des notes tirées de l'Histoire, de la Mythologie et de l'Histoire naturelle. Fables are selected from a variety of writers; the writer's identity is stated after each fable and before the Explication. The explanation sometimes grows considerably longer than the fable. The preface says that there is more accent here on literary quality than in the parallel book for younger people, Le Fablier du Premier Age. As Comenius' note expresses, the little illustrations are lovely. Some of the best for me are, not surprisingly, those I recognize from Florian: Le Danseur de Corde et le Balancier (52); La Carpe et les Carpillons and Un vieux Arbre et le Jardinier (74); and L'Enfant et les Noisettes (99). All four images facing 144 are arresting. The visual treatment of some animals like elephants and zebras is wild! Florian seems to have the largest selection here, followed by de la Motte and Blanchard. Many fabulists are represented. I am delighted to see Desbillons included in Fable XXI. A young monkey complains that her mother recommended nuts, but this nut surrounded in green is nothing! An older monkey breaks open the rejected nut and eats it. One has to work to get pleasure!en_US
