This edition shares identical text and engravings with many others, but in a lovely little leather-bound book with gold leaf and better reproductions. The illustrations are the same but the text, while identical, is set differently! One highlight of this little book is its glorious opening picture by R. Fontana of Aesop telling his tales (see 1878 under Printed Material early in this bibliography). A real find!
