What a rich collection of images! Organized apparently in three books of Aesop according to Romulus, each containing 20 fables, then 19 new fables, and finally 28 fables attributed to three sources that I cannot make out. I have trouble deciphering exactly what we have here. My best guess is that it is a reproduction of a fable text edition of with the later illustrations of Hollar, who seems to have been born in Prague in Here there are 77 illustrations, listed on Most are labelled J.
John Ogilby, I presume. According to Bodemann, Hollar did 57 illustrations in Ogilby's edition; the other 24 illustrations in that edition were copies of the work already done by Cleyn for Ogilby's edition.
Hollar also did 18 new illustrations for Ogilby's second collection. Three others there were engraved after Hollar's earlier work. Seventeen others were done by Barlow, and one was done by Joshua English. Altogether in that second collection, there were 39 plates containing 41 illustrations. Only partly because I can do nothing with the Czech texts, I enjoy these marvelous full-page illustrations! To page through is to meet good old friends. New to me and striking is the illustration for The Tortoise and the Eagle , which has the pair above the globe of the earth at satellite-like height.
What a great perspective on what is happening here! And is that BC on ? The mice seemed to have gathered a petition for the cat. Collections Books of Fables. Search DSpace. This Collection. Login Register.
