About 240 fables are arranged in alphabetical order, each with an italicized moral at the end. Thus we go from Aesop Plays to Young Mole and Her Mother. There are about twelve black-and-white illustrations of an inferior cast. Note both the strange facial expression on the lion on 78 and the strange extension of his arm straight off to his right. The versions, checked in a random sample, seem to expand on the fables tastefully with helpful explanation and motivation material. Running into an edition like this one reminds me that there are fields of unseen presentations of fables over the horizon.
