MetadataShow full item record
This book is absolutely identical with the Homewood edition (1930?) of the same title except for the presence here of a frontispiece colored from Billinghurst's The Fox and the Goat. That same colored illustration shows up on the cover of Conkey's The Fables of Aesop (1920?). The text here is thus the JBR text but without the preface or its writer's initials. 399 fables. See Burt's The Fables of Aesop (1920?) for more extensive comments on this text. Many of the Later Fables beginning on 142 are in verse.
