Abstract
This volume reprints with a new dust-jacket my first edition of 1978. It presents a complete set of translations of ancient fables. Thus it has five different versions noted under Der Fuchs u. die Trauben in the AI, which is organized by characters. The book begins with a careful introduction on the history of fables. The texts themselves are on 11-451. They run from Hesiod to Ignatius Diakonos. For each author, the fables are numbered successively in parentheses after the texts; the texts for Ignatius run thus from #1 to #57 on 437-51. There are only ten pages of comments (455-465). The following bibliography includes a concordance of numbers comparing Irmscher, Hausrath, Perry, Halm, and Chambry. Irmscher's numbers are in fact identical with Hausrath's from #1 through #307, with the exception of a few marked with an additional a and #287. Then follows the very helpful AI. The few changes from first to third edition reflect the change in political organization. Thus the place of printing has shifted from the German Democratic Republic to Germany.
