Panchatantra and Hitopadesa Stories (Cover: Panchatantra and Hitopadesa)
Panchapakesa Ayyar, A. S. (translator)
It has taken me twenty years to catalogue this book! I was hesitant because I thought it was an examination of Panchatantra and Hitopadesa. It is rather, after a lengthy introduction, a selection of some forty-eight stories from these two works, with eleven sub-stories included -- and listed in the opening T of C. While there are stories that are new to me, it is wonderful here to run into old friends, even near the front of the book: Crows Kill a Serpent; The Crane and the Crab; Too Much Sponging Leads to Death; and The Camel Trapped. The book is in fragile condition. It was once sold by Samuel Weiser Bookstore on Broadway in New York.
