15 Fables Célèbres Racontées en Argot, Recueil No. 2
La Fontaine, Jean de
Here is Volume II of fables in slang. I notice several curiosities. First, this was published in 1988, while my copy of Volume I was published in 1998. This volume has a larger format (about 7½ x 11). Though the publisher is the same here, the printer is Aymard in Pont-du-Chateau. Though the cover-design is again reminiscent of Rabier, it is different from the design on the cover of Volume I. In this case, the first fourteen of this pamphlet's fifteen fables are from La Fontaine. They include MM, FC, LM, OR, FS, GGE, WS, and TMCM. The fifteenth, Le vacher et le garde chasse, is Florian I 11. This volume lists eighty-seven numbers in the series. Only three deal with fables, and I have a copy of each of those three, including 12 Fables en Sabir (#83). Now I need to go out and find the volumes with matching format for each of these lovely finds!
