Phaedri Fabularum Aesopiarum Libri Quinque
(Apud Joannem Janssonium à Waesberge,Hamburg: Gothofred Schultzen and Amsterdam: Joannes Janssonium a Waesberge., 1673)
There is a nice French translation immediately after the text of each fable. Copious notes. Guyeti's additional notes begin on 248. They are in French and seem to include some Greek. A steal for the price!

Labyrinte de Versailles
(Nicolaus Visscher, 1683)
Finding this book was a terrific surprise! Laurence Veyrier had shown me a number of fable books. As I finished, she mentioned offhand that I probably would not be interested in the Versailles labyrinth. I have looked ...
Phaedri Augusti Caesaris liberti, Fabularum Aesopiarum libri quinque, notis perpetuis illustrati et cum integris aliorum observationibus (Rigaltii, Rittershusii, Schoppii, Meursii, Fabri, Schefferi) in lucem editi a Joanne Laurentio
(Apud Johannem Janssonium à Waesberge & viduam Elizei WeyerstraetJansson Westberg and Vidua Elzaeus Weyerstraet?, 1667)
This exquisite book lacks a title page and 177/78. Besides, 179 is misprinted as 197. It remains for me an exquisite mystery book. If it were not for the fact that it seems to end on 400, I would think that it is either ...
Candidatus Rhetoricae (or Novus Candidatus).
This little book is a find whatever it finally turns out to be! For now it seems to be a Jesuit collegium text in rhetoric following the Progymnasmata of Aphthonius. If one works from the back of the book, there is an ...

Ad Iambum Ut Carolum Pererium V. Cl. admoneat Fabulam iamdudum promissam in lucem edere
(Andreae Cramoisy, 1686)
Here is a strange little eight-page pamphlet that seems to be a dialogue between two fabulists, Carolus Pererius and Joannes Comirius, S.J. At first there is an introduction and then a fable, Mus, Feles, & Muscipula, that ...
The Fables of Aesop Paraphras'd in Verse, and adorned with Sculpture
(Printed by Thomas Warren for Andrew Crook, 1651)
Bodemann #70.1. Here is the costliest book in my collection. I never thought I would have a chance at it! This book has lost its binding, though its boards are still present. After an epistle dedicatory, a tribute by ...
