Abstract
This is one of two unusual finds in a lovely Berlin used bookshop. I did not know of the magazine Illustration 63. Antiquariat Ihring had several copies, and I looked through them. Not surprisingly, there were many fables represented in the good artworks reproduced in the issues. I found two especially nicely done and took them along. Each issue of the magazine includes a set of Beilagen, individual pieces printed on their own and included inside the back cover. This issue includes two Beilagen that offer fables. Benno Huth's smaller two-colored linocut presents Canum legati ad Iovem, the dogs sent to Iove. It is a funny illustration. Alfred Pohl presents in larger format a woodcut representing Iriarte's version of Aesop's Two Goats. As might be expected, it is a dynamic illustration. What I seem to be learning from Wikipedia and German Google is that the magazine died after seventy-nine issues.
