dc.description.abstractA surprise find in Santa Cruz's most religious used-book store. A magnificent volume representing a magnificent collection. Unfortunately none of the twelve magnificent tipped-in illustrations come from the Aesopic material. Fable material represents at least thirty-six of the 2653 items in the collection. Aesop counts for twenty-one, including Steinhöwel, del Tuppo, Gheeraerts, Croxall, and Bewick. (Avianus has five crosslistings among Aesop's twenty-one.) LaFontaine has eight, Bidpai five, and Hitopadesa and fables (Bewick's) one each. I had thought that this book was produced in paperbound form for about $40. This hardbound volume is a treasure worth a lot more than that! I note in May of '93 that Oak Knoll is selling a copy of this book for $65.en_US
