La Fontaine: Fables
This is a rather standard mid-sized (5 x 7) edition of La Fontaine's fables, but it adds several curious features. There are several illustrations, not of fables, but of La Fontaine and his home in Château-Thierry. The fables are gathered into twelve books and seem to be all here, but they are not numbered. However, they are listed individually and in order in the closing T of C. The biggest surprise is that 255 starts a special section not announced on the title-page: Les Fabulistes. This section presents some 27 fables of Florian (with a portrait and numbered by book and poem) and individual fables from some twenty-three other fabulists.
