The book starts off with twenty-three fables (1-36). Perhaps the most interesting thing about this book is the way it deals with Palazzo's pastels. Several are nicely reproduced, e.g. FG and TMCM. Others are reduced to black-and-white and then colored over with one color. This one color varies—as does the color on the end-papers—from pink in the good copy to green. Those with green have green spines, and those with pink have yellow spines. I had looked at this series for five years and had never found a section given over simply to Aesop. Because of their different colors, I will keep the two dust-jacketed copies in the collection.
