dc.description.abstractThe plates are identical with those in the Arlington Edition by Hurst which I have listed under 1899?, but the pages are thinner and the reproduction of Griset's work is excellent. The Finis page here occurs by mistake between 242 and 243. There is a slip-sheet between the frontispiece and the title page. After 140 pages of Aesop, there are 132 Later Fables in the last hundred pages of the book. There is a list of illustrations on vii-viii, and an AI on 245-9. Since the second copy has a different color cover, I will keep it in the collection.en_US
