A good selection of Oudry (twenty illustrations, one for each fable here), but the reproductions are not as sharp as I would have hoped. Kitty Muggeridge is Malcolm's wife; her vita is on the back flyleaf. The life of Aesop by La Fontaine may not appear very frequently. The versions are in brief, unrhymed verse. The extra copy adds a gold design of WC upside down on the back cover! Since they differ in that respect, I will keep both copies in the collection. See the 1973 reprint that gets the design correctly onto the front cover.
