A really beautiful book. Aesop in Bennett's 1857 black-and-white drawings and his original version gets eight or ten pages at the end. One could do a project on these prose versions sometime. The hand-colored 1857 facsimile from the Pierpont has longer morals. The other editions follow with some deletions, but not always the same deletions.
