Mishley Krilov (Hebrew Krylov's Fables)
Krylov, Ivan Andreevich
This is a short book of some 75 pages, with a T of C at the back showing some forty-eight fables. The artist's designs are like newspaper cartoons. Is that 2P on 14? I am not sure that the fable works with barrels instead of pots. This understanding of The Monkey and the Spectacles has the monkey putting the glasses on a tree limb as well as on himself (31)! For all its simplicity the illustration for WC gets the wolf's attitude just right (34)! The illustration for LS takes the quartering of the stag quite literally (64). Apparently Zeid's illustrations originated with this edition.
