dc.description.abstractThis is the second of a pair of beautifully printed paperbound volumes I discovered among my books now in 2005. When and how did I get them? I can only guess. There is a $9 price tag on each from Kinokuniya with a San Jose telephone number. Were they perhaps a gift of Rafael Sakurai? As for the book itself, its dust-jacket has beautifully colored Ulm woodcuts of the eagle carrying the tortoise and the wolves asking the shepherd to get rid of the dogs, with the second half of a beautiful peacock on the spine. Inside, the book moves from what we would call the back to the front with a succession of beautiful Ulm images, starting with LM on 11 and recurring every four to twelve pages. The beginning T of C seems to indicate that there are one-hundred-and-seventy-two fables on 223 pages, followed by an essay on Aesop on 224, complete with both Ulm's title-picture and Velasquez' painting of Aesop. On 229, there is an indication of Chambry's 1960 edition, and that may well be what is translated here. What a lovely pair of books!en_US
