MetadataShow full item record
This first of the four books has a separated front cover. There is an excellent introduction to Wright and an account of his editions, including the five fables he wrote to be included in the place of expurgated material in the sixth edition (1843). The order of pictures 38, 40, 39, 41 is changed. The Vivier engravings are numbered and well protected; the best of them here are of the lion, gnat, and spider (#35) and of the lion and ass hunting (#45).
