[LA FONTAINE, Jean DE]: La Fontaine en estampes, ou Nouvelle Edition des Fables, plus complete que les precedentes; precedee de la Vie de l'Auteur, extraite du nouvel Ouvrage de M. Walckenaer. Paris, Nepveu, 1821.
Beautiful illustrated edition of the fables of Jean de La Fontaine, dedicated to the Dauphin, and preceeded by "Precis de la Vie de J. de La Fontaine", at the end of which is stated that this edition is especially intended for youth. Further noted is that the arrangement of the large plates brought with it the changing of the usual order of the fables, as well as the omission of their numbering and division in Books. This however, is repaired by the alphabetical index, which adds the relevant Books and numbers to each fable. At the end of each fable some explanatory notes are added for the children as well. The book was printed for Nepveu by Imprimerie de Le Normant at Paris. The beautiful large plates were based on the grand Paris edition of La Fontaine's "Fables" with the magnificent print-series by the painter Jean Baptiste Oudry (1686-1755), and are here in fine and clear impressions. The plate on the title-page is also based on the frontispiece design by Oudry, depicting a detail in which Aesop is pointing out for some large animals the buste of Jean de La Fontaine covered with a garland of flowers. Oudry's fable illustrations were set in elegant architectural backgrounds, idyllic landscapes and beautiful garden scenes in the style of Louis XV.
Fine copy.- (Binding sl. rubbed; pp. XXV-XXVI of the "Precis" s erroneously bound in between pp. X-XI, and the "Dedication to the Dauphin", pp. (XXVII)-XXVIII, is found between pp. XIV-XV).

LA FONTAINE, [Jean] de. Contes et nouvelles en vers. Amsterdam (=Paris), (Duchesne), 1762.
Splendid copy of one of the most famous editions of the stories and novels by Jean de La Fontaine (1621-1695).Jean de La Fontaine's <I>Contes et Nouvelles</I> were at the time probably even more popular then his fables. Based on Boccaccio, La Fontaines tales consist of all sorts of exemplary stories, fairy tales and popular tales, they also contained a lesson or moral at the end. In the oldest collections from the East, like the Bidpai or the<I> Thousand and One Nights</I>, fables and fairy tales were freely mixed together, and also in the early West European collections, like the Exempla or the History of the Seven Wise Men of Rome, the various moralizing genres of fables, allegories and fairy tales were all present together. Still, La Fontaine's Contes et Nouvelles were more intended for the amusement of a gallant company than for the education of youth, often containing spicy 'exotic' and erotic elements.Our copy is of the so called 'Fermiers-Generaux' edition. In 1762 La Fontaine was commissioned by the 'farmers-general', or tax-farmers, a large and powerful group of men who collected the indirect taxes levied by the French crown. Nothing was spared to produce ''a fitting monument to the tax-farmers' wealth and position" and contains 71 Contes et nouvelles and other writings. The last 5 stories are not by La Fontaine:<I> La Couturiere, Le Gascon </I>and <I>La Cruche</I> are by Autereau; Promettre est un et tenir est un autre by Vergier and Le Rossignol which is attributed to Lamblin or to Du Trousset de Valincourt. Furthermore the <I>Dissertation sur la Joconde</I> at the end of the first volume, is by Boileau. The portrait of La Fontaine in the first volume is designed by Hyacinthe Rigaud and engraved by Ficquet, who also engraved the portrait of Charles Eisen after Vispre in the second volume. Eisen (1720-1778) on his turn is the designer of the 80 engraved plates illustrating the stories. He was one of the acknowledged masters of French rococo book illustration and these 80 designs are his finest work. "The robustness and voloptuous sensuality of his plates capture the flavor of the original Boccaccio from whom La Fontaine took his these tales, yet the precision and delicacy of their execution saves them from vulgarity." (Leslie A. Morris in <I>Visions of a collector</I>). His designs were engraved by Aliamet, Baquoy, Choffard, Delafosse, Flipart, Lemire, Leveau, de Longueil and Ouvrier. Pierre-Philippe Choffard (1730?-1809) also engraved the vignettes and head- and tailpieces, which wittily comment on the events in every preceding tale. In the second volume, the last tailpiece is a portrait of Choffard. Volume one contains an extra loose, refused engraving that depicts a scene of the fable <I>Le calendrier des Vieillards</I>.
