Abstract
Here is a finer edition of a book I found in Casablanca and have listed under 1993? It uses the same plates, including the many simple sketches of familiar scenes, but seems to have slightly different bibliographical material. It uses thinner, better paper. Its blue cover shows a composite picture of three pairs: Bidpai and the king, a snake and a bird, and Kalila and Dimna. The style of this cover illustration seems to be that of the sketches inside. As I have said in commenting on that other edition, my favorite among the sketches has the monk in bed whacking the rat with a pole! Many of the sketches are copies of famous manuscript illustrations. There is a T of C at the back.
