dc.description.abstractThis book adds Volumes II and III to my 1731/1975? book from Williamsburg. Volume II includes ten fables, assorted other material, and A New Introduction to the Art of Drawing. The third volume includes eleven fables. How and why these fables can match Gay so carefully for titles are mysteries to me. Jill Shefrin's afterword states simply that the fables hereare from the first volume of Gay's collection. Their order has been changed and within each fable lines have been deleted, transposed or revised. The afterword goes on to note frequent cases by the Bickhams of what we would call copyright infringement. Each fable has a pleasing engraving. Between fables are samples of good handwriting, moral precepts, and other goodies!en_US
