MetadataShow full item record
This large-format softbound booklet contains fifty-one fables, often directly admonitory and/or of a highly political slant. Thus the author writes of skylarks Poets like these are the true friends of the people (7). The best of the fables, I believe, are The Snake and the Rabbit (38) and The Original Rat (68), which may also have the best illustration. Among the most overtly political are those on the imperialist weasel munching a duckling (22) and the imperialist snake against the collective bees (35). Other good fables include The Hunter and His Wife (13), The Lion and the Setting Sun (19), The Lion and the Lamb (43), The Fox and the Rabbits' Farm (51), The Cow and Her Rope (52), The Curious Crow (55), and The Cow and Her Calf (64). I am delighted when dealers find out-of-the-way items like this one!
