dc.description.abstractThe text is taken from L'Estrange's 1692 edition. The book presents 201 fables, with twelve of Fiennes' wood engravings plus a cockerel on the colophon page (after 94). The wood-engravings are: CJ (1), FK (11, one of the liveliest), A Horse and an Asse (20), A Cat and Venus (31, another of the best), A Fox and a Goat (40), A Man and a Wooden God (51, one of the most dramatic), Two Cocks Fighting (60), 2W (67, well done), The Washing of a Blackmore (76), A Raven and a Snake (85), and A Gnat Challenges a Lyon (94). The wood-engravings give the impression of being silhouettes with very fine white lines defining their areas. I like them; in fact, I regret that there are only twelve! I had received this book just before going off on sabbatical, and had not yet accessioned it or removed it from my want list. What a pleasure it is now (August, '97) to find it as I return! A slim book, beautifully made.en_US
