dc.description.abstractAs far as is known, these are the world's oldest animal fables (5-6). About 2 x 2¾. This is a fine handbound miniature. Marbled papers over boards. Designed and bound by John & Gizella Lathourakis. This is one of the few times that I have bought a book from its author. I have found six favorite fables among the thirty-nine here on 100 pages. The Donkey and the Wolf (24) has the wolf riding on the donkey in a flood and thinking I will ride him to the river bank and then I will eat him. In Why the Dog Is Subservient to Man (52), the dog barks at the lion and is hit with its paw, while the fox shivers with fright and is smiled at. Be humble and show terror, and even the lion will like you, the fox says. In The Horse and the Mule (63), the two are yoked together to a cart. The horse complaining asks why he is pulling beside a mule and hauling reeds and stubble, and the mule answers Count your blessings! Imagine if you had to spend your days with a snob! The show dog (65) has puppies and complains that, because of their sire's lineage, they will never win a prize. The mongrel says Whether my three puppies have long legs or short, I love them. The rich ram will neither go for a walk with the she-goat nor play with her. The rich do nothing but guard their treasure (77). A fox pissed in the ocean. 'The ocean is my piss,' said the fox (93). Good stuff packed into a very small package.en_US
