At last I have the Routledge first edition. How wonderful! The colors are excellent. The early pages are a delight, featuring, e.g., owls with spectacles on the title page. The illustrations are differently colored and differently arranged on different pages. Good texts include The Cock and the Pearl, WL, The Fox and the Mosquitoes, and DLS. Good illustrations include those of Hercules and the waggoner, FC, the man that pleased none (the best of all), the peacock's complaint, the trumpeter, the bat, and the lion in love. The errata slip is missing, but then that fact is in itself an erratum.
