dc.description.abstractHere is an extra copy in poor to fair condition. Big, impressive, lavish. I had not known of this translator or this artist before. The engravings are ambitious and picturesque but ultimately unsuccessful. The best of them is the beautiful gilt cover (also at 229) of TT. Other typical illustrations include The Frog and the Rat (87) and The Heron (143). I have not yet checked out the translation, which the introduction calls rare. AI at back. I fear that this book serves more to fill out the tradition than to show some creative development.en_US
