A wonderfully reproduced book. The text can use the help of Jacobs' later reprinting. The 186 woodcuts (many for the life of Esope ) have their own charm but are distinctly inferior to the Ulm woodcuts from which they ultimately are derived. The introduction gives an excellent account of the derivation of early printed Aesop illustrations.
