Fables d'Ésope, Mises en Français avec le sens moral en quatre vers, Tome Second
This pair of volumes is curiously not in Bodemann, even though #191 is Le Prieur's apparent companion volume Fables de la Fontaine, with a second edition in 1807. There are three illustrations, each almost 1½ x 2½, to a single page for three fables. These are delightful, traditional, and in good condition. This volume contains Fables LXXII through CCXXV. Someone wrote accurately on the endpaper of the first volume that there are forty-one pages of illustrations here; that accounts for one-hundred-and-twenty-three illustrations. Thus a number of the fables here are not illustrated. For example, the first fable here, Fable LXXII, is not illustrated. The very first illustration, which is both frontispiece and the first set of three illustrations, substitutes Louq for Loup. A good sample illustration faces 13: the man with a club has dismembered a statue at the hip. I also enjoy the illustration for The Mother and Her Thieving Son facing 27: the hangman has the young man on a leash as he bites off his mother's ear. The illustrations lose contact with their stories in the pagination. Thus the illustrations that should face 76 and 80 face each other after 102. Each fable is introduced and concluded by a rhyming verse quatrain. At the end of the first volume is a T of C for both volumes.
