Inscribed again and (in the same family) in 1916. The preface claims to shorten and simplify its original's applications; the reference seems to be to Northcote's original series of fables. (See his emblem on 110.) The fifty fables follow the same two-page format: an engraving in one of five or six standard frames; an engraved initial letter; a fable; and usually two applications, one of which is a proverb. Are the engravings identical with Northcote's originals? The illustrations seem better than the fables. No T of C. Previously known to me: The Mastiff and the Curs (38, If there were no curs, I should be no mastiff) and The Red Lobster (50). There are four glow-worm fables!
