Abstract
I have been cataloguing German fable collections. I picked this book up after looking at perhaps a dozen others, and was immediately struck that it was by the same author who had edited an earlier collection, namely Rabe Fuchs und Löwe: Fabeln der Welt (1962) by the same publisher. A little examination showed that the plates from that edition were simply magnified to fill a slightly larger page with smaller margins. The pagination is thus exactly the same in the two editions. There is a reference to the earlier work on the back of the title-page. It is a lovely book, however they dress it up or change it! What I had written there includes this: There are three hundred and fifty-four fables here, beginning with Aesop and ranging across the world. The main group consists of German fables. They are all rendered in contemporary German idiom. This is a worthy and wide-ranging collection! T of C on 393.
