MetadataShow full item record
Excellent runs on the ten colored illustrations of Trnka, which also appear in the 1974 and 1974/85 editions by Grund and Exeter. The best of these is the cover featuring the wolf as shepherd. There are good black-and-white illustrations besides, though the later editions may have better runs of these. Forty-two fables in a longish and literary version (not identical with the text in Commager's edition of 1974/85).
