Abstract
Here is a fascinating edition. It reproduces the third edition from Paris, which I have under 1759. It has thus ten books of fables. There are several surprises here. First, the Society had already been suppressed several years earlier, but here in 1776 he is still proclaiming himself a Jesuit. Secondly, he had already published a fifteen-book edition in Mannheim in 1768. What is happening with a ten-book edition in 1776? Thirdly, what is that Fratrum Ign. on the title-page. Is there still a Jesuit remnant, like the Gentlemen of Maryland in the USA? Fourthly, this is the third edition published in Germany. What were the first two? There are here no illustrations. I am delighted to have this mysterious book in the collection! I would like to talk with Francois-Joseph about his fable editions…. An index on the last page apparently lists the twenty-two joci and five narrationculae. The selecta philosophorum veterum placita is a single text on 217-224. There is an AI on 225-231.
