Elegant edition of de Dorpius redaction of the Aesop fables. All Latin 349 fables in prose are printed in one column, each with a Adfabulation. The edition is an almost page-for-page reprint of an earlier Bassano edition (see nr. 35) which is a reprint of the Brescia edition of 1623 (Bodemann, 64.1), with partly the same woodcuts as in the undated earlier Bassano edition, which are after those in the 1623 edition but somewhat enlarged. The woodcuts in our edition (not all!) are more worn down than in the u dated Bassano edition). Bodemann, 64. 2 (variant, or printing error in Bodemann: 1743 = 1734?), see also 64.1 (& 31.1); not in Fabulae docet.
