MetadataShow full item record
A wonderful find! The first hundred pages or so go to Aesop in a fine collection from all sorts of fabulists, including Pilpay, Gay, Dodsley, Kriloff, Tolstoi, and Bierce. No author credited for Aesop. Only the combination of illustrations on 67 rises above decoration. The first copy here has the spine design of the original 1928 MacVeagh/Tudor edition, but the color is now purple and there is a cameo portrait marked Tudor impressed on the front cover; 1933 is listed on the title page in Roman numerals; there is a new blue and red dust jacket.
