Abstract
"It has been fun digging into this very small (3½" x 4") but sturdy book. Gasparov's translations have already found a place once in this collection, in a 2003 edition by Eksmo with the illustrations of Rackham. Here the life of Aesop takes up 5-165. There are some excellent accompanying line-drawings, starting with various views of Aesop (6) and showing him carrying the oversized breadbasket (29) and tongues (79). His master berates him for leaving his wife's buttocks uncovered (109). Fables start then on 169. Good illustrations here include the traveler and satyr (193), WC (269), and DLS (289). A little treasure!"
