dc.description.abstractWow! A first edition from 1838 for $9! It pays to watch Ebay carefully! Bodemann seems to make clear that the second edition in the same year includes the short epics "Ruth" and "Tobie" at the end of the volume, and they are not here. The fact that the front cover is present but separated is the only major flaw in this impressive volume of some 260 pages. Each fable gets a full-page illustration on separate paper, a title decoration, and an individual initial. There are also many strong tailpieces. I checked out some fifteen of the fables I know from Florian, and I found Adam's illustrations very good. Those I found particularly strong include "Truth and Fable" (I 1); "The Dog and the Cat (I 11); "Colas' Flock (II 5); "The Monkey and the Magic Lantern" (II 7); "King Lion's Education" (II 15); "The Boar and the Nightingales" (III 3); "King Alphonse" (III 9); "The Fox As Preacher" (III 15); "The Squirrel, the Dog, and the Fox" (IV 2); "The Parrot" (IV 3); and "The Crocodile and the Sturgeon" (V 11). "The Parrot" also has an excellent tailpiece. There is an AI at the end.en_US
