dc.description.abstractWhat a pleasure to include in the collection Number 26 in Bodemann's catalogue! This little (3" x 4½") book is one of the stars of the collection. It is in fair condition, hurt by a number of missing pages: xii-xiii; xv-xvi; xxii-xxv; xxix-xl; l-li; xci-xcii; and xciv-xcvii. Above the title for XX, the page title is a lovely jumble of the word "Esope." Twelve (of 14?) illustrations are present in the life of Aesop; the illustration for Chapitre xx shows Aesop's "sleeping wife of the master." Among the strongest illustrations are these: CJ (I); WL (II); "Eagle and Fox," with a good fire (XII); "Ass and Lapdog" (XV); FS (XXIX); DW (XLV); "Stag and Horse" (LIII); DM (LXVIII); "Eagle and Crow" (LXX); 2W (LXXXIII); and "Monkey Mother (XIC). I am happy to have found this little treasure on a 4th of July in Cecile Court just after pulling a hamstring! It is bound together with (the first portion of?) Guillaume de la Perriere's "Le Theatre des Bons Engins," which includes, apparently, 89 of the work's 100 emblems. First published by Janot in 1540 in Paris, with later editions in 1542 and 1544. This 1546 edition by Jean de Tournes in Paris, a year after de Tournes' first edition of the work. Groulleau, publisher of the fable book here, also did editions of "Le Theatre" in 1548, 1551, and 1561.en_US
