MetadataShow full item record
The illustrations are good, though not quite as good as in the Swedish edition I found earlier this summer. There is a list of illustrations on xi, and an AI at the back. A note at the end of the preface mentions that one-hundred-and-thirty fables have been added to those in the first and second editions. The total of fables is some 325 or so. A very nice book. The text is--except for that note at the end of preface--exactly the same as in the Arlington Edition (1899?), though the latter contains fewer illustrations. Osborne, Volume 1, 7. Is this the first edition of the 1893 revision? The extra copy lacks the frontispiece. Its cover has come loose from the spine, and its green front cover and undecorated rear cover show variations from the Delavan copy.
