In this new method, each pair of pages has four elements. The whole left page is taken up with a running vocabulary. The top of the right-hand page is a prose presentation of the Latin, with the appropriate French word written above each word. The middle of this page is occupied by the present portion of the Latin text, which might be three or four lines. The bottom of the page is a French prose translation of these lines into Latin. At the end of the volume there is a straight Latin presentation of just the texts of the fables. All of this work deals only with the thirty fables of the first book of Phaedrus. The second volume, published in 1759, adds another step to the method, still dealing with only these thirty fables. The front cover has separated from the spine. Apparently in neither Carnes nor Lamb.
