MetadataShow full item record
Fables of Aesop are on 364-88. Some curious tellings: the monkey seizes the cat's paws and makes her grab the hot nuts, and the moral of FG is Disappointment may be lightened by philosophy, even if the latter is wrong. A curious melange of illustrations: four nice colored illustrations to a page by Bess Bruce Cleveland in addition to the black-and-whites on the pages themselves (which look copied). Aesop is followed by fables of India, Gay, La Fontaine, and others. Also check 257-74: this Japanese and Other Oriental Tales section includes The Story of Zirac and other fable material. See the nearly identical edition of 1945.
