dc.description.abstractI already have in the collection a copy of this book in good condition. Though this copy is in less good condition, it is signed and inscribed by the translator. The inscription is made to Bill Weaver. Something difficult to decipher follows, and then Cairncross signs his name. As I mentioned there, thirteen good translations of LaFontaine make up some forty of the 140 pages here. The fables and other translations from French, Italian, Spanish, and German are presented bilingually, with the original and the translation facing each other. I am surprised that Cairncross can bring off the rhymed translations of LaFontaine as well as he does. The best include The Vicar and the Corpse (57-9) and The Cobbler and the Millionaire (65-7).en_US
