dc.description.abstractHere is a hefty, 367-page German Pantschatantra. It is a lovingly executed book, down to the inclusion of its own thematic bookmark. This translation goes all the way back to Theodor Benfey in 1859. The five books are listed on 11 with a lovely set of designs appropriate to each book, like the lion and the steer with Book 1. That page is then repeated at the start of each book, with the appropriate designs highlighted. The appropriate design also stays with each book in the upper right of each page and is complemented with pleasing designs around and even behind the text along the way. The few lines done, for example, to delineate Der eingeklemmte Affe on 18-19 are lovely! True to the Pantschatantra's style, there is plenty of verse mixed into the prose narrative here. I have enjoyed the sheer delight of watching this book's designs! Do not miss the menacing visiting monk with a stick to whack the mouse on 197. This book marks for me a high point in early East German book production.en_US
