dc.description.abstractI thought I knew this book when it showed up. Less than a year ago I found its French version, La Fontaine: Fables, Tome II, which was published in 1946. The publishing house, place, and number remain the same. Onkel Max threw me off, but once I could check the artist, I recognized the book. The French volume, which is identical in its choice of fables, art, and pagination, also represented a stroke of luck for me. Months earlier, I had catalogued Volume I of this two-volume edition and mentioned that it set me on a search for the other volume. How lucky I was to have found it on eBay! And now I have found Volume II of the German edition on German eBay and can continue on the search for Volume I! Be careful: the cover has Onkel Max erzählt Fabeln while the title-page has Tiergeschichten nacherzählt aus den berühmten Fabeln des Dichters La Fontaine. As I wrote earlier, this is a typical large-format French post-WWII edition containing ten fables. The long German prose text for each is on the left-hand page, with a full-page illustration on the right. The book has a canvas binding. The illustrations are lively and engaging, from the beginning illustration of the old cat and the young mouse. Other particularly fine illustrations include Der Fuchs und der Ziegenbock (also on the cover); FS; Der junge Hahn, die Katze und das Mäuslein; FM; and Der Delphin und der Affe. There is an advertisement for the first volume on the last page.en_US
