Abstract
The Fablio series of six books was done in French, Dutch, English, and German. Here is my first copy in German. It covers a story that I have not yet found in either French or English. It is 48 pages long and features Aesop, Phedre, and La Fontaine on the endpapers. The covers are laminated color pictorial boards. Heuler the wolf lives in a forbidding hut that even the devil would not inhabit. Heuler is starving. Fablio expands the tale considerably. Heuler sees a tender lamb walking along, but soon a ewe picks her up in his fast car. Heuler grabs onto the car and is pulled along into the city. He tries to steal her purse, but she strikes him and calls the police. He steals a bear's wallet but finds in it nothing but holy cards! Heuler next tries stealing from a grocery store, but is caught. Beiss the policeman comes. Heuler next tunnels into bank territory, gets onto the roof, and comes down the chimney. The security system discovers him, and the police give chase. Beiss ends up catching him when his money-sack will not fit through a manhole. At this point, the book moves to a German version of La Fontaine's fable, picturing Heuler and Beiss. It actually then repeats this version on a single page. There is wear on the spine tips and some rubbing and tearing at the corners and edges.
