See my Caxton Edition copies from 1884, 1885, and 1886. This copy comes from the same publisher but is earlier and is not in that series. Pages 183-98 are interbound between 278 and 279 instead of where they belong. Still, the book has 288 pages, including fables and an AI, as do all Belford copies. There are no advertisements at the back. The illustrations here are only average in execution. An illustration like that of The Ass and His Driver (231) has lost a lot of definition if we contrast it with the same illustration in my 1867 version. Inscribed in 1887. Like all Belford copies, though the title-page title starts with Three Hundred, the spine reads only Aesop's Fables.
