(Galley Press, W.H. Smith & Son Limited, 1978)
Here is a very curious book, marked by the cover of a lion reading a fable book in the presence of other animals and a title-page wordless fable of two mules and two piles of fodder. The first curiosity is that I had not ...
Pop-Up Fable Fun
(London: Chatto and Windus. Los Angeles: Intervisual Communications, 1978)

(Editorial Gredos, 1978)
My first Spanish find, on my first day in Madrid. My guess is that the Spanish translations are accurate and careful. Sixteen illustrations, most from the Zaragossa Ysopet; they seem to be identical with the Ulm woodcuts. ...
