Abstract
There are verse translations of fifteen of La Fontaine's fables here. I find the second, Council Held by the Rats (4), particularly effective. I had forgotten that in La Fontaine the belling idea comes from their eldest, a prudent person. This translator seems to take a bat to be equivalent to a bald-pated mouse (11). As always, I enjoy La Fontaine's version of SS (13-14). There are dramatic initials and a printer's mark on the final colophon page.
