dc.description.abstractThis little volume is lacking a number of things, including its title-page, Fables II-VI, and the last 1½ fables. If it followed the tradition of similar Croxall editions, also lacking are a frontispiece, a preface, and an AI before the fables and an index of themes after them. It fits squarely in the tradition of cheap reprintings of the Croxall edition of 1722 with new illustrations. The illustrations here are identical with those found in the Derby & Jackson edition of 1859. The format of this book is smaller and the type is set differently than there, though also already with a modern s. Thus the illustrations are imitations of Kirkall's, simpler and mirror-reversed (as they were in Mozley's editions of 1804 and 1807), but all in the oval within a rectangle style. The non-image portion of the rectangle becomes simpler and less ornate than it was in Kirkall's work. Fable CXCV begins here on 348. This copy is in fair condition, with a spine that shows some damage; the illustrations seem well preserved. This is a little treasure from a friendly local book-dealer who tried to watch out for me during my year at Georgetown and died soon thereafter.en_US
