'Sixieme edition' stated on title page. No date, circa 1850. French text. Nicely rebacked with new gilt titles, fore-edge corners exposed. viii, 456 pp. 8vo. Black blind-stamped cloth with gilt titles and elaborate gilt, blue, red, green, and yellow decorations, all edges gilt. The original French fables by Jean de la Fontaine. First released in several volumes over a period of over 25 years in the 17th century, they quickly became classics of French literature, and enjoy nearly the same recognition as Aesop's contributions to the genre (in fact, some editions of Aesop borrow from other sources, including La Fontaine). This edition includes woodcuts by Tichon from illustrations by Francois Bouchot, and is bound in decorative boards designed by Liebherre, with his name incorporated in the design on the front board.
