MetadataShow full item record
My original Winder/Rountree (1924?) has fifty-eight fables, forty-eight illustrated. This has fifty-six, thirty illustrated. What has been dropped?: The Blackamoor, The Ass in the Tiger's Skin, and The Boy and the Nettle. GA (175) has been added. The Winder text is altered here: note the loss of gay colors in FG. The plates are enjoyable, but not up to the quality of the originals. They are printed back-to-back on special paper, with sayings facing. Compare also with the smaller 1987 Ward Lock reprint from Exeter (forty-eight fables, sixteen illustrations).
