This lovely little book may not fit into a collection of Aesop. At first I was going to exclude it. But Aesop is on the cover and he is behind more than a few of the fables, notably The Dog and the Stork, which turns out to have a second chapter including a merciful stork and repentant dog. The engravings are excellent. The applications are overlong and moralistic and include appeals to Christian virtue.
