Closest to the McLoughlin (1885?) versions of the same title, this volume differs by its red cover with a girl holding a bird (Aesopic?), its four colored illustrations by Weir, and its excellent prints of the illustrations. The preface is much longer, the life of Aesop slightly larger. The pagination of the fables is ten pages short throughout, since this book starts its fables on 1 while that starts them on 11. There are colored illustrations of the woman and the hen (frontispiece), the wild boar and the fox (82), the game-cocks and the partridge (170), and the ass and the horse (202).
