The collection consists of articles, correspondence, and printed matter of McKenzie, professor of Romance languages at Princeton, relating to fables. The collection contains an article on Italian fables and an article on McKenzie's fable collection which appeared in the June, 1944, issue of the Princeton University Library Chronicle. Also included are notes and research material on bestiaries, fables of Italy, England, the United States, and France, and Hebrew fables, as well as specific references to the fables of Aesop and La Fontaine. The printed matter includes offprints of McKenzie's articles and clippings from book catalogues regarding fables. Researchers should be aware that this collection does not contain any fables, only research and notes about fables and McKenzie's fable collection.
