Comments

Handsome edition of this volume by Sell (1939-2009), a German graphic artist, illustrator, and ceramist. The volume contains traditional fables (Aesop, Avian, Romulus, Wilhelm Busch, Johannes Pauli, et al.), each accompanied by a color woodcut by Sell. While the trade edition precedes by two years, the deluxe issue is uncommon; OCLC notes 2 holdings only (Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, Otto von Guericke University).
