Abstract
Samaniego published five books of his fables in Valencia in 1781 and four further books in Madrid in 1784. Their title seems curious to us: Fábulas en verso castellano para el uso del Real Seminario Vascongado, in which the last word is Basques. The first five books include twenty or twenty-five fables each. The later books include twelve, twelve, nine, and nineteen, respectively. The Grandville illustrations are taken from his 1838 La Fontaine. They are done here in gray rather than black; like the book as a whole, they are well rendered. That they can be used for Samaniego's work gives testimony to the basically Aesopic character of his fables. There is Grandville's WC done in lively color on the front cover. The outer edge of both covers is dented about an inch from the top.
