See my comments on the 1804 edition by the same publisher. By contrast, this book lacks the frontispiece and any title-page vignette; further its title above CJ on 1 (Aesop's Fables) is simpler, and the cuts are much stronger there than here. This edition has a magnificent calf cover and the standard features one can recognize from earlier Croxall editions: dedication, preface (vii-xvii), and alphabetical T of C (xviii-xxiv) at the beginning. Then some 329 pages are given to 196 fables, each with a cut and a long application. At the rear there is an index of important subjects handled in the applications. Like the other Mozley edition, this book does not number its edition but proclaims only A New Edition, Carefully Revised and Improved.
