dc.description.abstractThe title continues "Entremêle de Maximes, Sentences et Proverbs." Bodemann #350 describes this book to a T, down to the colored cover with a variety of fable images and the colored frontispiece of frolicking cats. This book is a lovely find and rich resource, especially at the price! The 68 vignettes are by various hands. After the tumult of the cats, the first image is of the mother opossum putting her children into the protection of her pouch, as Florian's fable describes. There are here three books of thirty fables each. The books deal, respectively, with (I) Virtues and Vices' (II) Proprieties and Incongruities; and (III) Good and Bad Habits. Fables form the backbone of the book. Proverbs, aphorisms, and "charades" then can follow individual fables. The last of these seem to be word games for pupils. I count more than twenty fabulists used here. How frequent is it to see a German publisher in Leipzig and Berlin produce a book in French? I am delighted to have come across this book!en_US
