Abstract
Here is a fifth edition of a book we have had from its earlier 1972 printing. The publisher has changed from Giunti e Centro Internazionale del Libro to Giunti-Nardini Editore. As I mention there, we now have copies in English, German, Danish, and Italian. As I wrote of the English edition, this is a lovely book, especially for the beautiful colored art on its big pages. The fables range in type and quality. Some deal more than the Aesopic tradition with the elements: fire, water, stone, and steel. Some are good Aesopic stuff: "The Mouse, the Weasel, and the Cat;" "The Tree and the Pole;" "The Ermine;" "The Walnut and the Bell Tower;" and "The Falcon and the Duck." The morals are surprisingly traditional, allegorical, and moralistic. Two of the best are statements of faith: "The Pelican" and "The Eagle Burning Off His Feathers." The best illustration among many good ones is of the butterfly and the flame. Like the German first volume, this edition puts the Owl and smaller birds onto its cover. Here the T of C is at the book's end.
