dc.description.abstractHere is a second copy of the first printing of this lovely book. I wrote the following about the primary copy. This is a good book! Each of the eight fables gives an autobiographical Sitz im Leben for Aesop's telling of the story. For example, the foolhardy plans of his fellow slave-boy friends for running away and becoming pirates are a prelude to Aesop's telling them BC. The book has warm, colorful contemporary illustrations. LM (14) is particularly well told. GGE (36) is presented with an unusual turn: the riches from earlier golden eggs vanish when the goose is killed. An unusual situation explains the first invitation in FS (50): the fox owed the deer a favor, who happened to be with the stork while the fox was cooking up some recently stolen food. When invited, the deer said that she could not make it, but recommended that the stork take her place.en_US
