Firmin Didot Freres Paris: Firmin Didot Freres. [ca. 1840]. Miniature book, in original publishers paper over boards and matching publisher's slipcase. Engraved title page plus six engravings illustrating selected fables of Jean de La Fontaine. 96pp; 2-3/8" x 1-5/8", bound in bright green paper over boards with romantique design stamped in black on both covers and on spine, aeg, housed in matching publisher's slipcase with title "Le Petit La Fontaine" printed in black within four-ruled decorative border on front of case and romantique design printed on rear of case. A bit of paper missing at spine edges so that white shows a bit, else fine and quite remarkable thus. While Fermin-Didot miniatures are not uncommon, those in original binding with publisher's matching slipcase are decidedly not common! See an Image.
