A wonderful little book! Eighteen fables, each done with four excellent, witty pictures. This printing comes off as very successful, especially in contrast with some other printings. Book detectives will want to compare with this edition the 1950 reworking of the book by Wise. The illustrations follow a pattern: opener, comment, full-page display, and epigram. Delightful!
