Abstract
Earlier I had found a copy of the 1944 printing of this book. This is the 1927 printing noted there. Several things set it off from that later book. Oxford University Press in 1927 boasted of eight place names on the title-page, but in 1944 only Oxford is mentioned. The printer for this earlier version was John Johnson, not Humphrey Milford. The book was printed not in Great Britain but in England. At the back of this earlier version are sixteen pages of books for The Study of Modern Languages, namely French and German. I think I can understand why they did not advertise German books in 1944! As I mentioned of the later version, this is a standard English-language textbook for reading La Fontaine in French. It presents seventy-three fables with notes and vocabulary. The notes begin on 129 and include a reference for each fable to its source. The vocabulary begins on 176. It is preceded by an AI of the fables.
