dc.description.abstractHere is an extra copy of this beautiful book. Its excellent reproductions (twenty-four in color) of the seventy-eight illustrations of the Bodleian Manuscript Pococke 400 (from the year 1354) complement well Ramsay Wood's Kalila and Dimna text (1982) and are the basis of the illustrations there. These fables are included: The Fox and the Drum; The Lion and the Hare; The Lion, the Crow, the Wolf, the Jackal, and the Camel; TT; The Crow, the Mouse, the Tortoise, and the Gazelle; The Owls and the Crows; The Hare and the Elephant; The Monkey and the Tortoise (here the I forgot my heart motif gets an excellent addition when the monkey says it does not hurt us monkeys to lose our heart and thus reassures the anxious tortoise); The Mouse and the Cat; and The Traveler and the Jeweler. The story is followed by a careful history of it and its illustration, a detailed description of each illustration, and a bibliography. The inside covers misidentify the two jackals after whom the book is named!en_US
