dc.description.abstractThis paperback booklet of 136 pages is in a series with several others I have from Origen, notably one volume of Samaniego and two volumes of La Fontaine. The special value of this book lies, I believe, in its illustrations of Iriarte. Perhaps because he wrote literary satires and not children's literature, he is seldom illustrated. Here sixty-seven fables are presented, with some seventeen of them illustrated with full-page black-and-white illustrations. Illustrated are The Lion and the Eagle (10); The Donkey and the Flute (21); The Ox and the Grasshopper (29); Two Parrots and a Magpie (36); The Frog and the Tadpole (43); The Bee and the Cuckoo (51); The Monkey (53); The Crow and the Turkey (63); The Macaw and the Marmot (67); The Tea-Plant and the Sage (73); The Concert of the Beasts (81); The Four Unfortunates (87); The Nightingale and the Sparrow (93); The Hunter and His Ferret (99); The Lizards (106); The Mole and the Other Animals (113); and The Connoisseurs (121). I had not noticed The Concert of the Beasts before. It is vintage Iriarte! There is a T of C on 5-7. The front cover pictures Los Dos Conejos (40): two rabbits in a garden argue about the quality of the dogs pursuing them until the dogs devour them. More vintage Iriarte!en_US
