Here is the first of two extra copies. Thirty-eight fables, almost all from LaFontaine, done in couplets apparently based on the rhythms of Samuel Butler. They move along swiftly enough. LaFontaine is clearly behind this work. I first found this pamphlet thinking that I had one at home. In fact all I had was a xerox for $15 from the publisher because the work had been sold out! I would rather be lucky than good!
