dc.description.abstractPalau calls this tall paperbound folio a magnífica reproducción facsímile (81959). The editors seem not to know of the Toulouse edition of 1488; see my Esopete Ystoriado (Toulouse 1488), published in 1990. Nor do they refer to this 1489 edition, as that 1990 book does, as from Zaragoza. This edition nicely lists on vii the five main parts of the 1489 book: (1) four books of Aesop, totalling eighty fables; (2) extravagantes of Aesop, totalling seventeen; (3) Remicio's Aesopic fables, totalling seventeen; (4) Avianus, totalling twenty-six; and (5) colletas of Pedro Alfonso, Poggio, and others--mostly satiric and picaresque--totalling twenty-two and finishing with MSA. There is on 20-52 an extensive bibliography of Spanish fable editions, including Iriarte, Samaniego, and other authors. I count twenty-nine illustrations for the life of Aesop besides the frontispiece, and I agree that they are good imitations of Steinhöwel. I am surprised to see that every one of the 162 fables gets a woodcut. I think this is my only facsimile of something directly related to Steinhöwel, and so it may be one of my most complete resources for his work too. A major find. Fable vii of the extravagantes is mis-numbered as viii (LXXVIII).en_US
