dc.description.abstractHere is a curiosity. This book is perfectly identical with another in the collection except for two differences. First, this copy does not stipulate Alfo Kunstdruck Verlag on its title-page. That is particularly curious because no publisher is stipulated anywhere. Like the books in the Alfo Kunstdruck Verlag, this book has a canvas binding, colored paper covers with a colored illustration at the center, and 32 pages. Secondly, this copy lacks pagination. From here on, I will repeat my description of that book. A T of C at the beginning announces fourteen fables. Each fable has a two-page spread. On the left page is a prose fable after Aesop, with a separate, highlighted moral at the end. On the right is a frame of black-and-white designs above and below a colored illustration of the fable. The frames here play less than they do in Fabeln von La Fontaine, but they are still engaging and delightful. Often they present before or after material, as on 19, where an eagle carries off a lamb above and children play with a crow below. This page also presents an excellent coordination of the black-and-white mountain tops with their lower sections in the colored picture. The colored pictures here may be more engaging than those in the La Fontaine volume. The distressed owner being charmed by the ass on 5 is well depicted. The illustration for The Lion and the Man here shows a drastic result. The lion invited the man to an open place to show him the answer to the tombstone depicting a man overcoming a lion. What we see is the lion standing over a dead and bloody man (13). The full complement of three pictures is well done for the Chanticleer story on 17.en_US
