Abstract
Volume II of Bodemann 268.1. This is a small book, about 3 x 4½. As the comment there points out, this is the first edition with Crapelet's notes. The remark there that all the poems are divided up into five-line sections seems exaggerated; perhaps the meaning is only that line numbers are noted only every five lines. Bodemann gives the illustrator as Constant Viguier and the etcher as Pierre-François Godard. The comment about a second title-page illustration now comes clear: it refers to the title-page illustration for the second volume, namely La Fontaine's grave monument. For a sample illustration, one might want to look at Le Curé et le Mort (39. The illustration for Le Trésor et les deux Hommes (188) seems to have been hand-painted brown. Did another hand add green to Les Lapins on 247? There is a T of C for this volume, containing the last six of La Fontaine's books, at the back. Then there is an extensive AI covering both volumes. This was a very lucky find on eBay!
