dc.description.abstractHere is a lovely first edition that I found at one of the first bookstores I tried on this trip to Berlin. It contains seventy-one verse fables, taken particularly from Burkhard Waldis, La Fontaine, and French fabulists just before Hagedorn's time. The leisurely T of C at the end of the book lists the source(s) for each fable. Besides numerous designs after fables, apparently unrelated to each fable's content, there are only three illustrations in the whole 210-page book. The title-page engraving shows truth personified. The illustration atop the foreword shows the freeing of Aesop. The illustration to the first text shows Bathsheba at her toilette. This illustration thus refers more to the frame-narrative than to the fable told by Nathan to the king. For its age, this book is in good condition. I cannot find Hagedorn's name anywhere in the book!en_US
