Abstract
This book reduplicates four editions I already have listed under 1897, 1901, 1907, and perhaps 1912. Those were generally published under the Auspices of les Magasins du Bon Marché. This publisher is new, even though the book is exactly the same. Its eighty-one gravures from the eighteenth century "La Fontaine en Estampes" seem to be mostly details from Oudry. That is certainly the case on 9 (DW) and 59 (SS). They suffer only from their relatively small size of 2.5" x 3.5". To them is added the series of smaller drawings from a fourteenth-century manuscript, either identical with or reproduced from those in Fables Inédites des XIIe, XIIIe et XIVe Siècles et Fables de la Fontaine of 1825 by A.C.M. Robert. The covers are part marble and part leather. AI at the back.
