MetadataShow full item record
This book is already in the collection, but this copy, found thirty years later, is signed by Vincent Torre, and so I include it on its own. I am delighted to have found a copy at a reasonable price. Perhaps I am coming close to finding all of Torre's fable books! As I wrote of the copy found earlier, this is a one-man book. Seventeen fables in verse, with a predilection for off-rhymes and even some off-rhythms. An occasional moral shows wit (e.g., GGE on 60). Different: a farmer gets into FG, and the frog and the rat quarrel over the fee in mid-stream. There is one primitive drawing for each fable. The borders and print are very pleasing.
