Abstract
Here is a Dutch copy of a book I have already in English, German, and French. Large-format, colorful book containing forty-six fables. The art is big, colorful, and dramatic. BF (#1) has the smallest bird I have ever seen trying to wear these peacock feathers! OF (#3) starts with a great image of a horned frog; the ox seems his only interlocuter, since there is no other frog around. TMCM (#5) does show a Turkish rug, but the setting seems to be more the country meal than the city meal, and there is no country meal in La Fontaine! Great chagrined lion (#12), overcome by the gnat. Sometimes the images of two fables are merged on one two-page spread, e.g. GA and FC and again WC and FG. In 2P (#25) the iron pot has a good moustache. The illustration for "The Mountain that Gave Birth" (#27) is strange: a man in the foreground raises a golden egg in his hand, while the mountain in the background looks sad. In "The Torrent and the River" (#40), a hat floating on the calm surface tells the whole story. Great job for an inexpensive book! T of C at the front, listing stories sequentially. Unpaginated. The texts are centered verse. Copyright 1993 by Aventinum Nakladdatelstvi: apparently the Slovak version.
