Abstract
Here is a rare find. I doubt that many copies were printed of this large-format book. It is in very good condition. Not in Bodemann. There are eight strong colored illustrations here; each fable seems to get two illustrations, of which at least one is done in black-and-white. Two of the most suggestive illustrations belong to LM. My favorite is for TMCM: two mice hug each other in fear under a chair. The illustrations for Two Travellers and a Bag of Money are modern in subject and approach; the theft takes place in a subway or rail station. It is embarrassing, I think, that a class project like this makes a key mistake in the title of the book on the title-page.
