dc.description.abstractHere is a surprising reprint of Jones and Rackham's work. Its special feature is a soft orange composition cover. Embossed into this composition front cover are some twelve morals from Aesop's fables around a blue title. On the back cover, the fable of The Two Sacks is embossed entire. Inside, the book has 284 numbered fables on 239 pages. The book stops dead at that point. Along the way are many Rackham illustrations, unfortunately all reduced to gray-and-white. Some, like The Moon and Her Mother (14) are particularly indistinct. It would be informative sometime to count the number of reprints of Jones and Rackham that have appeared in the time since the copyright expired in 1987. This edition and at least some of my other reprints have in The Kid and the Wolf on 165 a typo whereby the gods gave chase to the wolf, when clearly dogs is asked for by the story. I had already bought this book from Amazon but it got sent to Berkeley, where it will wait some months for me to pick it up. Ironically, I found this copy staring at me on a random visit to this bookshop on Fifth Street in Berkeley, and I did not recognize it as the book I had ordered earlier.en_US
