Denis, Charles, Select Fables. By Mr. Charles Denis. London: Printed for J. and R. Tonson and S. Draper, MDCCLIV.  In-8, [frontispiece; title-page; dedication to the Prince of Wales (ii); preface (xvii); contents (ix); 448 pages]. Rebound in quarter brown calf, five raised bands, gilt-decorated label, on twentieth century marbled boards. Following in the tradition of LaFontaine, Aesop, and — if Quintilian is to be believed — Hesiod. Charles Denis wrote fables that survive the Classical definition: A fable is no more than a moral instruction disguised under the allegory of an action. De LaMotte said a fable was an epic poem in miniature, but with more freedom of subject and in the choice of actors. There are 120 fables in Denis’s collection, the last was dedicated to His Grace, Thomas, the Archbishop of Canterbury titled “The Phoenix and the Owl.” First edition. ESTC Cit. No. T101633.
