dc.description.abstractI had presumed when ordering this copy that it was another copy of a book which I already had. That presumption was wrong, as it has often been wrong before. This book has a different front cover, different different back cover, different quality paper, and a different printer. The front cover of that other book offers the illustrations for BF with a list of the fables in this volume at the place where (on 81) the text of the fable will stand among the illustrations for BF. This front cover, by contrast, offers a large single picture including butterfly, rabbit, crow, several birds, dog, duck, and tortoise and a French flag. This illustration seems to draw from animals in many different fables. Was the illustration perhaps created just for this cover? The back cover there, in color, showed the cat pinning both the hare and weasel. Here the back cover shows the dejected fowl-killer in GGE. The paper quality here is less than it was there. This paper is thinner and less cleanly white, and it shows darkening around its edges. The verso of the title-page there, facing BF, proclaims Imprimerie Union, 46, Boul. St. Jacques, Paris. This volume, in the same place, has Imp. Crémieu, 4 bis, Rue des Suisses, Paris. I seem to have no resources -- not Bodemann or Bassy -- to help me know which of these two is the more original or how they otherwise interrelate. As I wrote there, this second volume (of three, I presume) presents a second group of fables stretching from IV 8 through VII 14. The same surprising little section in English appears at the lower left of the pre-title page: Published December 1, -1906. Privilege of Copyright in the United States, reserved under the act approved March 3 1905 by Tallandier. Pagination continues from the first part, beginning here with 81, which happens to feature one of the best illustrations of the book, BF. Rabier is really fun! Of course, finding two of three volumes makes me search now for the third! T of C at the back.en_US
