Abstract
This lovely reproduction in exaggerated portrait format (4¾ x 8½) is a mystery to me. It presents very traditional rectangular illustrations, one for each of the 117 fables. They seem to be signed by I Raymond. But I can find no record of an edition like this done in 1763--or, in Bodemann, for one done in 1963 either. I had presumed that the French Book Club was celebrating the three-hundredth anniversary of a famous book, but I can find nothing out about the book! The fables start with a varied ornamental line across the page, a number, a title, and an illustration. After the narration, there is a simple straight line. The illustrations as reproduced here are quite dark. Is that carpenter on 63 missing a portion of his arm?
