dc.description.abstractHere is a little (3½ x 5½) book beautifully bound in leather with a gold title on the cover and spine. Its title-page contains the claim: Dans laquelle on aperçoit d'un coup-d'oeil la moralité de la fable. Here this highlighting of the passage supposedly most revelatory of the moral is done by means of italics. This book has seen some things in its 180 years! It features some generous worm-holes; one good set of them runs from 10 through 60. There are also occasional doodlers' images: Is that a woman on 53? There are also some ink-stains and some foxing along the way. The small illustrations are frequent and simple. They look like a standard set used for La Fontaine's fables. Several of them strike me as more interesting: Le Mort et le Malheureux, for example, on 27. The frustrated young man about to strike the wall-painting of the lion on 220 is well presented. Some of the images come out extremely dark. For typically dark images, notice TH on 154 and L'Ane et ses Maitres on 155. The binder apparently created some serious mistakes in putting together this book. Pages containing Fables 10 through 14 of Book I are out of order, as is 25, which now comes just before 35. The book contains 354 pages. It is not in Bodemann, and its artists Carez and Toul do not appear there either.en_US
