I am glad to have an excuse for including among fable editions this oversize book in terrible condition with board covers and almost no spine left. My excuse is that it contains LaFontaine's story about the two rats and the egg (Fables 9.19). Here the two rats have become three mice. Cox excells in lively grotesqueries, and this volume is no exception. The cheap paper and time have worked together to make the impressions of many of the engravings blotted. Unpaginated.
