MetadataShow full item record
The woodcuts are strong, even if the art is not in the style that I would favor. 122 fables. There are 43 illustrations of varying size and configuration, including some that spread across the center page-division (2-3) and others that are split above and below text (18 and 24). The best illustrations are GGE (6), The Old Woman and the Wine-Jug (7), The Geese and the Cranes (11), FM (15), and The Kid and the Wolf (38). There is a nice statement No More of Aesop's Fables after the last fable on 70. The printer seems to have had troubles getting the numbers aligned in the T of C (71). I first saw this book in the library of Holy Names College twenty years earlier. I am delighted at last to have found a copy!
