Abstract
Bodemann #255. Now here is an unusual book. Note that it is just the second volume of a two-volume set. Overall the two volumes offer eighty-six of Krylof's fables in Russian in five books with corresponding imitations in French and Italian. This volume has Books III-V; they contain, respectively, seventeen, seventeen, and eighteen fables for a total of fifty-two in this volume. Note that the three T of C pages for each book come after the book. The steel engravings come one at the beginning of each book for the first fable in that book: The Cat and the Cook (3), Sharing Up (127), and Wayfarers and Hounds (249). In at least one case, there are two Italian translations given: Il Ruscello on 351 and 354. What a lovely old book! Many of the French translations were done by Le Bailly. Were the rest just sitting around waiting to be included in a book like this one?
