dc.description.abstractThis book has the earmarks of matching Bodemann #369, the first edition of Schanz's work. The publisher's name seems, by the third edition, the next edition to be mentioned there, to have changed to include Müller. Also, at latest the third and subsequent editions seem to have listed their edition on the title-page, and there is no listing of an edition here. Bodemann's note seems to indicate that this is the octavo, which lacks the six aquarelles found in the quarto. Though I cannot find the six aquarelles, I do find six full-pages on heavier paper interpolated along the way in this very nice book. The page count of 124 also fits with her account of the octavo. A long list of fellow authors appears on the title-page, including Julius Sturm and Johannes Trojan. If there was a frontispiece, it is now lacking. The authors are noted both in the beginning T of C and at the end of each individual fable. This copy shows some pencilling, e.g., on 17 and facing 24. Perhaps the cleverest illustration is that of the dog smoking a cigarette (26). I have read most of the first fifteen fables. Many are rather predictable. Several strike me as engagingly clever. The shark, e.g., laughs at the ostrich for eating stones, and then dives down to eat shoes, nails, and half of a sail (6). A caterpillar's idea of mind-expanding travel is to eat the next branch clean (16)! One fable from Sturm presents a mouse in winter begging a hamster for something to eat. The answer is Not today. Ask again tomorrow. The mouse dies before tomorrow can come. A suicidal nightingale laments the loss of light (19), and a glow-worm answers I will illumine you. I took notes on those stories which I read while waiting in a doctor's office. I have included those notes in this edition of the book. I also have a sixth edition, in slightly larger format, listed under 1910?. Pages 7-10 are missing.en_US
