dc.description.abstractDédiée à la Jeunesse. Note that I have only the first volume. Not in Bodemann. A charming little book, not least for its few but lovely illustrations. After a word to youth, there is Planudes' life of Aesop, embellished by an engraving facing 23 of the rejection of the ugly Aesop by Xanthus' wife. There follow eighty-one prose Aesopic fables concluding on 156. After each is the usual verse quatrain offering a moral. The illustrations are LS (73); FS (96); Horse and Ass (115); and The Fox and the Rooster (138). The illustrations have an unusual format. There is an open quadrangle under a portrait engraving, offering a space as though for a title. A very faint signature under each seems to be G. Texier sculp. Texier seems not to appear in Bodemann. Billois appears in Bodemann in #135.11, an 1802 two-volume La Fontaine edition using reproductions of Oudry and Coste's commentary. Leather binding. Marbled end-papers.en_US
