Very rare Swedish edition of a selection of translations and imitations of fables by German authors, by the French writer and linguist Jonchère. Parts of the book were originally published in 1812 as Fables traduites ou imitées de l'allemand in Paris, Lübeck and Hamburg, with a second expanded edition appearing in Paris in 1815, here reprinted in Stockholm.
Binding very slightly rubbed along the extremities, and a few specks on the boards, but otherwise in very good condition.
