dc.description.abstractHere is a second copy of this magnificent book! I keep it in the collection because both copies have seen extensive wear. This copy is better externally and the original copy from Bookhouse, Arlington, VA, in 1991 is better internally. As I wrote there, this is a magnificent book. 310 magnificent illustrations by Rabier, eighty-five in color. His freedom to arrange things often makes for an excellent series of views pertaining to a fable. Favorite illustrations of mine include the title page, GA (1), OF (16), FS (20), The Bitch and Her Companion (32), The Drunk and His Wife (57), and The Acorn and the Pumpkin (212).
