Aesop's Fables, Vol. I (Chinese)

"Here is a mysterious set of three books, found too long after I had acquired them. I have pieced together some information from the web. I know that they have one ISBN number for the whole set (957-492-375-4) and one for each volume (here: 957-492-376-2). This first volume has DS on its cover, which would be the back cover in a western book. A beginning T of C lists 37 fables in this volume on some 191 pages, with stiff paper covers that form their own flyleaves. The fables are easy to recognize from the lively colored illustrations, usually two to a fable with occasional colored photographs showing given animals. Good sample illustrations are for "Fox and Eagle" (25) and "Lion and Mosquito" (29). Town Mouse and Country Mouse seem to be interrupted by a cook who fits their dimensions (42). Each fable has a small "post-it note" in a corner with a smaller version of one of the illustrations. Might that note express a moral? Both the screaming ant and the thrown leaf are done in expressive primitive fashion in AD (53). The artist choose a good perspective for presenting the fox in the well looking up at the goat (99)! The set of three volumes is boxed."
