Abstract
Here is one of the nicest books I found in Sweden. Count Gustaf Fredrik Gyllenborg (1731-1808) was one of the original members of the Swedish Academy. This seems to be the important publication of fables by Gyllenborg. Does the title suggest that it was put together posthumously from the papers he left behind twenty years earlier? There are four books, introduced by an opening T of C. They seem typically Aesopic. Would one be correct to suspect a typical Enlightenment agenda in the fables? There is a strong lithographed frontispiece: Aesopus och Djuren. Aesop here is a balding senior among animals. The other three lithographed illustrations are LM (57); Tuppen City Tornet (109); and The Man with an Enlivened Snake (161). They are very well executed! Each lithograph is signed Lundquist and Gjöthstrom (?). The book's paper is unusually thin. This work has been put onto the web by Projekt Runeberg. Not in Bodemann.
