dc.description.abstractA wild array of sixty-five stories and illustrations by various contemporary artists. Ten items mention or bear upon Aesop. They include Don't Count Your Chickens (18), which claims that it is eggs which are smashed in Aesop; The Hawk and the Nightingale (20, from Hesiod); The Grateful Animals and The Ungrateful Man (68, from Kalila and Dimna); The Blind Ones and The Matter of the Elephant (84); The Brahmin's Wife and the Mongoose (106); The Lamb with the Golden Fleece (142, from the Jatakas); The Ass in the Pantherskin (162); The Serpent (170); The Fox and the Hedgehog (236); and The Slowest May Win The Race (252). Page 236 shows one of the more egregious errors I have seen in a while: the claim is made that Caxton published 850 years after Aesop (620 B.C.). Someone was not paying attention to his/her BC's and AD's. The extra copy unfortunately has some pencilling and other markings (2, 150, 152-3, and 244); in it 110 is torn.en_US
