For consideration is this beautiful little edition of Jean de la Fontaine's 'Fables' published in France by Librairie Hachette. The book is entirely in French. The 'Fables' were originally published from 1668- 1694 and there are 239 of them in all. The condition of this book is good. There are some names inscribed on the front cover and a little writing on the back cover in pencil that can be erased if desired. A few pages have pencil notes in the margins. The pages are fragile, but are all connected to the binding. On the left bottom corner of the front cover is a little affixed price indicating that the book originally cost 5 francs 50. Measures 6" x 4".
