When it rains, it pours. After ten years of trying, I have two copies of this wonderful catalogue. The St. Nicholas copy was offered as an afterthought of the dealer after we had talked about sending a copy of my bibliography. It pays to keep in touch! Among the two hundred featured items are ten dealing with fables: Faerno's 1572 Venice Centum Fabulae (#7); the 1664 Augsburg Esopische Fabeln with fifty-five copperplate engravings by Simon Grimm (#19); a Hoole bilingual edition from 1676 (#25; mine is from 1731); LaMotte's 1721 One Hundred New Court Fables (#42); the Gay edition from 1727-38, illustrated by Kent, Wooton, and Gravelot (#45); a LaFontaine edition from 1765-75 illustrated with engravings by Fessard (#65); Bewick's 1784 Select Fables (#75; identical with mine?); Baldwin's 1805 Fables Ancient and Modern with with copperplate engravings by Mulready (#92); the original 1867 Doré LaFontaine (#149; mine is from 1868); and eight watercolor designs by Ernest Griset for a children's Reynard, possibly unpublished (#152). Great stuff! The errata slip still gets Hoole's item number wrong, 92 instead of 25.
