Fábulas y Cuentos Morales, Tomo I
Garcés de Marcilla, Francisco
This lovely little volume, bound in leather with Volume II from1864, remains a mystery to me. It contains a prolog and 180 pages given to ninety-four verse fables and fourteen verse cuentos. There are a number of illustrations, including two that have been at least partially hand-colored (22 and 168). Other illustrations occur on 48, 66, 115, 147, and 154. There is on 36 a fine illustration of the monkey phrenologist! From what I can gather, these are not redoings of Aesopic fables but rather fables with original subjects. The title-page includes florid titles, dedications, and permissions (?) that would take too much space to reproduce here.
