Abstract
This book seems to be a (smaller?) reprint of the original Polish edition, perhaps from 1956. In that year a German edition was made from the original, Ignacy Krasicki: Fabeln by Alfred Holz Verlag in Berlin. That book (9¼ x almost 13) is larger in format than this (8¼ x 11¼). They present the same forty fables and the same illustrations, though the pagination is different. As I wrote there, perhaps a quarter of the fables represent Aesopic material. There are also a number of fine pithy fables after the manner of Aesop, as when the mouse tells the turtle how pitiable he is for having to live in a virtual prison; the turtle answers that it may be narrow and small but it is his (8)! I enjoy the answer of the clever man to the fool who has just asked him what use reason is: Reason is useful for silence to stupid questions (39). There is a T of C at the rear. The illustrations are less well done here, and the book has suffered some hard wear. There are some notes at the end before the T of C.
