Fábulas y Cuentos Morales, Tomo II
This lovely little volume, bound in leather with Volume I from1863, remains a mystery to me. It contains a prolog and 182 pages given to one hundred-and-eighteen verse fables and seventeen verse cuentos. There are a number of illustrations, including several that have been at least partially hand-colored (26, 53, 100, 108, and 142). Other illustrations occur on 77 and 155. There is on 123 a fine illustration of theory and practice. From what I can gather, these are not redoings of Aesopic fables but rather fables with original subjects. The title-page includes florid titles, dedications, and permissions (?) that would take too much space to reproduce here. Notice that the publisher has changed from Volume I.
