dc.description.abstractHere is an extra copy of this paperback. This is a useful inexpensive representation of the 1912 Heinemann original. It adds to that edition a good list of nineteen proverbial morals on its very first two pages. It also offers an accurate time-line of historical events important for the history of fable (ix-xii). Ashliman's introduction supplants the Chesterton introduction in the original. An appendix gives Aarne-Thompson numbers for the fables (249-51). There are also useful questions and quotations on 252-57. The book reproduces at least many of Arthur Rackham's illustrations. The colored illustrations suffer by being reproduced in black-and-white. Rackham's original black-and-white work comes through well. There are 283 numbered fables on 243 pages. There is a T of C at the book's beginning and an AI at its end. This would make a suitable basic textbook for people studying twentieth-century editions of fables. Barnes & Noble does a worthy service by reprinting this book and outfitting it with so many study helps!en_US
