dc.description.abstractWhat a beautiful gift! Sharp translations of 118 fables are accompanied by thirteen lovely black-and-white engravings and monochrome and two-color washes. My favorites among the illustrations are of the old woman and her maids (5), 2W (15), and the old woman and the doctor (19). The versions include pointed and proverbial morals. Three of my favorites are Boast before your betters and be laughed at for a fool for The Lion and the Donkey (1), Good wishes from an enemy make the wise man nervous for The Hen and the Cat (7), and The smaller the mind the greater the conceit for The Gnat and the Bull (30). As June herself commented, this is indeed a rare modern Aesop. Dust jacket signed by Charles L. Pickering, who designates himself as Tor-Mentor. A real treasure!en_US
