MetadataShow full item record
One hundred and ten fables, each with a simple woodcut and many with a (sometimes generic) tailpiece. Apparently the first paragraph of Croxall's Application is taken in each case. T of C at the front. Leather cover. This little book is in surprisingly good condition for its age. What a wonderful find on the Internet! Thomas Beckman writes that the illustrations are probably by James Poupard, and they were initially used in a Philadelphia edition of 1802 by R. Aitkin. They seem also to have been copied or reproduced for an 1842 edition by John Locken in Philadelphia.
