Abstract
This first volume (of three, I presume) presents the first seventy fables of La Fontaine, through IV 7, Le Singe et le Dauphin--which has some black-and-white illustration work typical of Rabier's lively and fun-loving cartoon style. There is a surprising little section in English printed at the lower left of the pre-title page: Published December 1, -1906. Privilege of Copyright in the United States, reserved under the act approved March 3 1905 by Tallandier. Was a certain number of this edition printed by Tallandier in Paris for the USA? The red ink seems to have been applied to the bottom page edges sloppily. Otherwise it is again a delight to encounter Rabier's great work! I can find no reference to this three-part publication in either Bodemann or Bassy. T of C at the back and a list of fables on the cover.
