dc.description.abstractI found this book in this paperback and then later in hardbound form in one afternoon in Prague. The series' 62 numbers are listed on the inside back cover. Included are works by Ruskin, Twain, Dostoevsky, and Tolstoy. The cover picture here is a fine colored rendition of the crane as doctor approaching the sick wolf next to the dead chicken which he has been devouring. The wolf has a scarf tied around his neck. Inside the booklet are thirty fables, generally one or two pages in length, each with a black-and-white initial representing the fable. Thus the first is a V incorporating a lion and a rabbit. These initials are strong, delicate, lively. I can find only one initial that correlates easily with an Aesopic fable: FC on 17. An essay after the fables, "Zaver," is signed by V.T. Who might that be?en_US
