Abstract
For each of fifteen fables, there is here a two-page spread with a glossy full-page illustration. The book is about 10½ x 14. In FG, the fox has to come up with an excuse because a bird is laughing at him. I think that the decoration of the other page is a special feature of this book. Sometimes there is a small design, like that of the seated cicada on 6. Sometimes, the full-page illustration spills over onto the text page (e.g., Il Cervo alla Fonte on 22-23). Sometimes there is a pleasant border around the text matching the theme of the illustration (e.g., 2). In the wildest image of all, the ass runs out from under his lion's skin as other asses approach him (12-13); this image spreads across the full width of two pages. BF on 16-17 shows another clever disposition of the available space. The attitudes in both the peacock and the crow on the right are well portrayed. There is a T of C at the back. This was a nice find on a very hot Saturday afternoon in Rome.
