dc.description.abstractLovely stuff. The drawings really are excellent. I saw the first edition of this book from Harrison in Paris for sale in Atlanta at too high a price but have since found it. I have eight different versions of this Dover reprint. The earliest, which sold for $1.25, is listed separately. The seven other copies, all of which I will gather under this listing, show differences in price and some slight differences in the format of their covers. Copy A, for $1.50, I found at Stillwater Book Center for $3 in January of 1997. Copy B, for $1.75, comes from an unknown source and seems to have been the Calder Aesop I used personally as I began this collection. Copy C, for $2, cost $1 from an unknown source. This copy moves the price from the front to the back cover. This version also consolidates the book's first eight pages into two by eliminating four blanks and a page with nothing other than title and author. Now the title-page starts the book. Its verso combines the Publisher's Note, with its date 1967, and the bibliographical material previously on a separate page. This version is unique for listing a price in Canada. Copy D, which sold originally for $2.25, is inscribed by Monroe Wheeler, designer and co-publisher of the original edition of the book by Harrison in Paris. It comes from Bookman's Alley, Evanston, IL, in September of 1993. I paid $15 for it. Copy E, for $2.75, cost $2.40 from Cartesian Bookstore, Berkeley, in August of 1994. This version adds an ISBN number on its back cover. Copy F, for $3.50, adds an offer of the complete Dover catalog on the back cover. Copy G, for $4.95, adds a bar code on and changes the format of the back cover by removing all red except a stripe along the spine. It was a gift of Mary Pat Ryan from Vail, CO, in September of 1997.en_US
