Abstract
This small book (3½" x 5¼") is a curious publication by Ledentu 1832. It is one of a number of Florian editions to appear about this time: Comynet (1830, 1832); Victor Adam (1838); Langlumé et Peltier (1840); Tastu (1841); Mame (1841); and Grandville (1842). The book is similar to the Mame edition from 1841 in having two illustrations per page. There are six pages with two illustrations each: the frontispiece, 38, 50, 65, 105, and 129. The illustrations are not elaborate. "Truth and Fable" seems to be a regular for the first illustration, often on the title-page itself. Here it is half of the frontispiece. This book was an amazing catch at $4.99! I have 5 other books by Ledentu from between 1800 and 1836; all five present La Fontaine's fables.
