dc.description.abstractSome 110 fables on 130 pages. Texts come from Aesop, Krylov, La Fontaine, Shtainbarg, the Bible, and Jewish traditions. To my surprise, I can identify most of these stories with ease. The illustrations are highly playful. They can occur several to a page around the text. I enjoy, for example, the sketch of MSA on the bottom of 11 that has father and son carrying the ass. It is easy to recognize old friends like Krylov's Lobster, Pike, and Swan on 15 or TH on 18-19 or WL on 30-31. One of the tenderest sketches has the dove still holding the twig on which the ant crawls out of the water on 33. Do not miss The Blind Men and the Elephant on 40-41. The fox as soup chef as part of FS on 51-52 is superb. The crow has to be a great shot to get the pebbles into the vase on 61! Both 80 and the monochrome facing it picture The Fox and the Eagle, and both do it well. I could go on and on; this is a delightful artistic work, even in only fair condition. There are several full-page monochrome illustrations. The best of these for me has the porcupine greeting the snakes in their lair facing 64. The canvas spine is not holding up well.en_US
