This straightforward volume has several claims. It contains a large number of fables, perhaps 275, listed alphabetically on xi. In the introduction, J.W.M. makes the claim we believe this to be the first full English version which gives a moral in every case. Besides Croxall and L'Estrange considerable new material has been obtained from other credible sources. Finally, the book makes an explicit effort at simplicity. It departs at some points apparently from the Lupton-Arlington-Homewood tradition of versions taken from the two authors and LaFontaine. Compare with my 1925? editions that list only NY as the site of the publisher.
