dc.description.abstractThis is Bodemann #289.3. The first and second editions of it were apparently both done in 1838, and so Bodemann dates this edition--done by a new publisher--after 1838. The special charm of this book lies in its one-hundred-and-eleven full-page interpaginated plates: a frontispiece and one plate for each of the twenty-two fables in each of the five books. Each plate has not only a consecutive number at the upper left but also a number at the upper right showing the page it faces. I have been looking for a book to help me find my way in Florian, who is seldom translated into English; these plates can help with some of the more obscure fables. Among the better plates here are The Cat and the Mirror (12); Le Chat et la Lunette (32); The Monkey Who Shows the Laterna Magica (64): The Tight-Rope Walker and the Balancer (87); The Two Bachelors (120); The Avaricious Man and His Son (177); and The Two Bald Men (192). Besides the plates, there are initials and printer's designs after many of the fables. Do not miss, e.g., the two faces on 81. Both the initial and the final designs for The Parakeet (161-62) and The Two Bald Men (192) are excellent. With all the intercalated stiff-stock pages, this is quite a hefty book! There is an AI at the back.en_US
