dc.description.abstractThis book seems to be the predecessor of Donohue and Henneberry's Aesop's Fables of 1896. This edition stops at 111, uses some different full-page illustrations, has no date, lacks the Henneberry part of the publisher, and has a different cover of colorful boards. The full-page illustrations here are often generic animal illustrations inserted rather cleverly to match animals talked about on the opposing page. A special prize should be awarded for inserting on 19 the second of two pages of multiple drawings for TMCM; both pages appear and make sense together in Fairy Land Tales Told Long Ago (1885?). Many of the full-page Doré illustrations do not appear here. The paper in this edition blots the ink a great deal. See my comments on the 1896 edition and in particular on its eclecticism.en_US
