A small book with oilcloth covers, with a green and gray pastoral illustration on the front cover. Otherwise unillustrated. The life of Aesop, which takes up the first forty pages, seems only slightly revised and expurgated. Some 155 of L'Estrange's fables are chosen; to judge from my best L'Estrange source, Gooden (1992), the fable renditions are faithful to L'Estrange, except that they do not present morals or reflections. What a wonderful little gift!
