This book makes a curious study in the movement from an original to a cheaper children's book. The sharp acrylics of Sturrock's 1988 edition have lost something here. The thirty fables there have become nineteen here. There is no T of C here. About the illustrator is gone. Other changes have been made: TH appeared as both frontispiece and last illustration in 1988. Here the picture of the dolphin and ape is first frontispiece and then a particular illustration. Text and picture have changed places throughout, and there is a new colored border for the text pages. The dedication has moved to the back. There are new covers and endpapers. The front cover here has a collage of five illustrations. See also under separate ID numbers my copies of the second and third printing.
