dc.description.abstractThis oversized landscape-formatted book (12½" x 9½") is one of the books I have found recently only because abe runs periodic sales for specific sellers. It is some specimen of a book! The illustrations are gorgeous! The splendors start with the two foxes on the front cover and continue all the way to the grand rooster on the back cover. The contrasting illustrations of FS are particularly strong. Another great piece is TH, where a determined tortoise walks on just his hind legs. WL is again dramatic. The fox of FG sits against a tree and contemplates the grapes of various colors above and away from him. When we do the Joslyn exhibit, this would be a book to present! There is a T of C at the end. The spine is weakening. The endpapers offer clever silhouetting of key fable figures. Not in Bodemann.en_US
