The Italian engraver and architect Giorgio Fossati collected and published fables by Phaedrus and La Fontaine that are evenly distributed throughout the six volumes of this bilingual edition. His illustrations consist of two frontispieces and thirty-six intaglio prints in different colours red, blue, green, bistre, and black, among others in each volume along with countless vignettes and tail-pieces.
All of the volumes present dark blue morocco bindings featuring dentelle decoration, a style that is emblematic of the eighteenth century. The subtlety and freshness of these bindings reveal the quality of the work executed by Derome le Jeune, who was a member of a renowned family of bookbinders-gilders. By using small gilding irons to represent volutes, points, scrolls, shells, and stylised floral and vegetable motifs that were applied along the ends of the covers of the binding and subtly broadened at the corners and in the middle of each side, the artist created ornamentation that was harmoniously conceived in accordance with his imagination.

He is known above all for his Fables , which provided a model for subsequent fabulists across Europe and numerous alternative versions in France, as well as in French regional languages. After a long period of royal suspicion, he was admitted to the French Academy and his reputation in France has never faded since. Evidence of this is found in the many pictures and statues of the writer, later depictions on medals, coins and postage stamps. Both sides of his family were of the highest provincial middle class; though they were not noble, his father was fairly wealthy.
