dc.description.abstractA curious and delightful sideways book that I find difficult to date. Twelve tables present ten engravings apiece, with a Gothic-script text, generally in verse, for each engraving. The texts follow the illustrations left to right, starting at the top; they often seem wordy and forced. Many of the fables tend to become punchless arguments. Sources include Kalila and Dimna--for example, for The Fox and the Drum (2), The Lion and the Hare (8), and TT (16)--and various authors like Lessing ( Zeus and the Horse, 3) and Lichtwer ( The Ape with the Watch, 57). Is that Krylov's Quartet pictured on the title page? I cannot find Quartet in the collection. Many of the fables are new to me, starting with the first, The Dog and the He-Goat. Is that The Musicians of Bremen that we find as a fable on 8? A good story that is little known is The Lion and the Rabbit (2) about self-knowledge. The engravings are charming, starting from the cover engraving of Aesop writing. Among the best illustrations are The Frog and the Mouse (Table II), The Cat and the Mice (Table IV), The Magic Lantern (Table V, though the fable is in my opinion very poorly told), LM (Table VI), and Wolf (Table XI). Table II and the backs of most illustration pages are pencilled in. Inscribed by Oscar Mayer.en_US
