Abstract
Here is a copy of the second printing -- in dust-jacket -- of this huge and lovely book, without illustrations, with an index of titles and first lines in both English and French. I would like to keep coming back to this book. Most of LaFontaine I find on the longish side, and so I find many of these translations long. But the shorter ones are delightful and usable. For example: The Cock and the Pearl (31), FG with a fine moral (67), a Hen that laid golden eggs, with a very nicely pointed moral (111), The Horse and the Ass (131), and The Old Cat and the Young Mouse (284).
