Abstract
My, how fables get around! This book presents a transcription of the music and a translation of the fables as they appeared in 1732. This edition grouped the fables selected from LaFontaine in six volumes. For the fables researcher, the English summaries (157-75) and the French alphabetical listing of fables (181-4) will be especially helpful. The version used in the songs is adapted from LaFontaine's (usually longer) versions.
