About this Item

AESOPUS. Les Fables d'Esope Phrygien. Traduction nouvelle Illustree . par I. Baudoin. Rouen: Chez Jean & David Berthelin, 1659. [20], 131, [9], 638 [i.e., 608] p. Illus. Old vellum, spine with gilt-stamped label. Lacking leaf X3, including etching 69. A few leaves with small tears or closely trimmed, with minor loss. Frontis. neatly mounted. Light to moderate foxing, some soiling. Aesop and the fable were very popular in France in the 17th century, and a great many editions were produced. This particular edition is a French translation with timely commentary on the text by "Jean Baudoin," which may be a pseudonym for Pierre de Boissat, the translator. It is amply illustrated with 118 full-page numbered etchings plus an integral frontispiece and an additional full-page etching in the preliminaries for a total of 120 (one of which is lacking in this copy), as well as being ornamented with woodcut head- and tailpieces and initials. The images are well-drawn and often slyly humorous, such as "the man who had two wives" (no. 83). Bookseller Inventory # 12207
