Abstract
This is a small book (3¾ x 6). A T of C finishes the book on 117-18. There are forty-one stories here. I have seen most of these texts in either Alverdes or the 1956 Aufbau edition. New to me in this book are Der betrübte Witwer (56); Cotill (61); Der Lügner (65); Hanns Nord (73); Der Polyhistor (79); Der junge Krebs und der Seemuschel (94); Der Tod der Fliege und der Mücke (97); Der Leichtsinn (98); and especially Der grüne Esel (37). From the latter comes the title, which is worth quoting even more fully: Ein Ding mag noch so närrisch sein,/es sei nur neu: so nimmt's den Pöbel ein. The full-page pen-and-ink illustrations lose something by being so small. I find those I can recognize engaging, e.g., Der Polyhistor (77). I enjoyed making my way through the new fables.
