Abstract
Here is another in the chain of fable books authored by Fr. Desbillons. This recent paperback reproduction takes up the first volume of his set of bilingual translations of his own work. My suspicion is that it was a three-volume set, since his fables eventually included fifteen books. Here we have Books I-V with the Latin verse on the left and French prose on the right. There are no illustrations and a few printer's designs after fables. Five books of fables had appeared in 1754. The key editions of fifteen books of Desbillons' own fables seem to have been in 1768 and 1789, the year of his death. Here is a translation of his own work in 1779. The Society of Jesus had been suppressed in 1773, but he remains Pere Desbillons. Was this book meant largely as a translation help for French-speaking students trying to make their way through his Latin fables?
