This is my earliest Weir, and I find these engravings (executed by either Greenaway or Butterworth and Heath) new by comparison with the many other Weir illustrations I have. Besides the twenty-four full-page illustrations, there are the smaller designs on the title page and with the first and last fables. The texture of Weir's animals here is unusual, and there is something tableau-like, inactive, about his scenes. The best of the illustrations is, I believe, of the jackdaw and eagle (78). There are one-hunded and seven fables. The front end-paper is lacking. There is a T of C, with a list of illustrations, at the front.
