Three unusual visual features mark this work. The first is the dramatic and colorful LM on the front cover's pictorial board. The second is the orange and blue frontispiece of The Lion, The Ass, and the Fox from Billinghurst. The third is the back cover's line drawing of a grouping of animals--bear, monkeys, stork, owl, goat, wolf, tortoise, mouse--and a shoe. Otherwise the collection is the standard JBR text with the addition, starting on 142, of twenty-six Later Fables. The illustrations are full-page, printed on both sides, and interspersed unpaginated with text pages. The illustrations among the Later Fables are far away from their texts; e.g., those for 42 are between 144 and 145. Note other Conkey reprintings of the JBR text with Billinghurst's illustrations in 1920? and 1930?. This book has neither a T of C nor an AI.
