Here is a wonderful gift of Willis Regier, retired Director of the University of Illinois Press and a fellow fable devotee. This 2007 edition has a 2007 preface honoring Ben Edwin Perry. It is as beautifully produced as the original 1952 volume -- and as treasured. I look back now and notice that the original edition, which I was delighted to find at Black Oak Books in Berkeley in 1986, was book #206 in this collection. If my calculations are correct, this edition is book #8215. My original comment was curiously laconic: Bigger margins and thicker paper than in the Arno reprint (1952/80). Perfect condition. A real find. The standard work for textual comparison. The book has been a bible to me over these thirty years since I first found it.
