    First Latin-French edition of Faerno'’s collection, an English-French edition was published two years before. Gabriele Faerno (d. 1561) was commissioned to compile a selection of Aesopian fables by his protector Pope Pius IV in c. 1550. The collection of 100 fables was published in 1563 only, after Faerno'’s death. Charles Perrault’'s French translation in verses was first published in 1699. His aim was to achieve an ideal combination of closeness to the Latin text with La Fontaine’'s subtle poetry. The present Latin-French edition was in use as a text book at the time. – Bodemann 119.2; Cohen/de Ricci 371; Brunet II, 1160 Avec frontispice gravé et 100 vignettes gravées dans le texte par Claude du Bosc. (Achevée). [19], 45, 238, (2) p. 4 à. Demi veau XIXème sur plats marbrés. Pages de garde marbrées. Certains numéros de poèmes / sections sont imprimés de manière incorrecte, mais tous sont présents et toutes les gravures sont présentes. Légers frottements sur les bords du dos, et une touche de chocs sur les plats. Le bloc de texte est impeccable, avec des gravures magnifiquement propres et lumineuses. 260 par 210 mm (10¼ par 8¼ pouces).
    Première édition latino-française de la collection de Faerno, une édition anglais-français avait été publiée deux ans auparavant. Gabriele Faerno (d. 1561) a été chargé de compiler une sélection de fables ésopiennes par son protecteur le pape Pie IV en c. 1550. Le recueil de 100 fables fut publié en 1563 seulement, après la mort de Faerno. La traduction française en vers de Charles Perrault a été publiée pour la première fois en 1699. Son objectif était de parvenir à une combinaison idéale de proximité du texte latin avec la poésie subtile de La Fontaine. La présente édition latino-française était utilisée comme manuel à l'époque. – Bodemann 119,2 ; Cohen/de Ricci 371 ; Brunet II, 1160

    One early purchaser of the first two parts was Samuel Pepys. Whilst Pepys acknowledged that the book was the "greatest fashion" he could not see why it was deemed so witty. Hudibras was reprinted many times in the centuries following Butler's death.
