A curious little treasure. There are poetic versions of 201 of l'Estrange's 500 prose fables published in 1692, with shorter applications (they still seem long!). Stacy says that earlier verse attempts have beenflat and insipid (l'Estrange's words for earlier attempts generally). The advertisement facing 1 promises a second volume. L'Estrange was not originally illustrated, and neither is Stacy. AI at the beginning.
