dc.description.abstractI can find no discrepancy between this book and Bodemann #376.1. Bodemann dates to about 1910 her leicht veränderter Nachdruck of the first edition of 1897. For all I can ascertain, this could even be the 1897 original printing. As she points out, there are 54 half-page illustrations, which I believe are photoengravings. Among the best of these are The Rat and the Oyster (241), The Bear and the Gardener (242), and The Fox and the Turkeys (387). In addition, there are 94 line drawings in various formats. I prefer these to the photoengravings. Among the best are these: Death and the Woodman (42), The Lion and the Gnat (62), WC (95), The Wolf and the Hunter (271), The Mice and the Screech Owl (351), and The Cat and the Two Sparrows (359). Vimar's foxes, wolves, and monkeys either laughing or in pain are particularly strong and engaging. Many of his endpieces are good fun. Thus a beetle wields a sledge-hammer against the eagle's eggs on 60. One can contrast the two methods dealing with one fable on 150-51. This book is in good condition. I consider myself extremely lucky to have found this book, and just as lucky to have found it for this price!en_US
