dc.description.abstractI never thought we would have a copy of this wonderful book in the collection. From the time I first saw subscriptions being invited, I feared it would always be beyond our means. Prayers do get answered! This is a beautiful facsimile. The hand-colored illustrations from the copy in the Otto Schäfer collection are lovely. Many of them seem like old friends from the many times I have seen them reproduced in various forms. Looking through this tome helps me understand now some of the features of the accompanying Kommentar. The famous title-page, for example, is missing in the Schäfer copy and so is reprinted there in black-and-white from another copy. Other pages illustrated there seem to be the missing pages from this copy. The facsimile offers everything, including bruises and marks. A few of these occur in the lovely illustrations. I note one poorly printed colored illustration: it occurs two pages after the illustration of a man watching his own excrement; it is, I believe, a presentation of Aesop's resolution of the challenge to drink the sea dry. I found an extra copy of one page from the Extravagantes. Its verso begins and pictures Fable IX, The Fox, Wolf, and Lion. I will leave it loose at the back of this edition. This big book is a treasure I will keep coming back to!en_US
