MetadataShow full item record
Bodemann lists this edition as #218.1 and refers to it as a Gesamtausgabe mit110 Fabeln. The frontispiece contains five cameos. Bodemann incorrectly -- at least for this copy -- says that there are 110 lithographs. There are rather one per book, after a single frontispiece page with five cameo illustrations. One of these is Truth and Fable. The full-page lithographs for the fables are unusually precise and detailed. They include The Blind and the Lame (60); The Child, the Mother, and the Opossums (65); The Dervish, the Crow, and the Falcon (115); The Owl, the Cat, the Goose, and the Rat (124, sometimes known apparently as The Collegians); The Trial of the Two Foxes (171); and The Guilty Dog (194). There is an AI at the rear.
