Bearbeitet von Dr. Otto Hohenstatt
This hardbound book contains some ninety-five traditional Aesopic fables in prose on some 84 pages, with strong black-and-white designs about every four pages. Most extravagant of these nicely shaded illustrations is BF spread around the text across 40-41. "Der Waschechte Mohr" is a fable seldom presented or illustrated these days (43)! Another fine illustration is that for "Die Frau und ihre Mägde" (49). In "Der Schatz in der Bildsäule," the man has the wooden god in a very strange position (75)! Germany was not replete with resources in 1949. I am surprised that this book has lasted in such good condition. I am also somewhat surprised not to have run across the book until now. There is a T of C at the front of the book.
