dc.description.abstractThese two books use the identical plates used to make the smaller format book published by Crowell in the same year. Thus they have 230 pages and 330 fables. See my comments there. These books have a slightly larger format and use wider margins. They also take a slightly different approach to the illustrations, removing the FC frontispiece and putting it on 202. Instead there is a frontispiece of DS that may be done after a Billinghurst illustration, but it lacks the typical frame given his illustrations here. In the good green-covered copy the frontispiece includes pink tint. Several other illustrations are moved slightly. The roster of Billinghurst illustrations here is thus LM (10), The Fox and the Goat (26), FWT (42), FS (90), FG (122), FK (171), and TH (218). The cream-colored copy lacks the FS illustration. There is no illustration in either copy for FK, though there is a suspicious gap in the green-covered copy between 170 and 171. The cream-colored copy is inscribed in 1921. It is especially clear on the green cover that the eyes of the peacock's feathers are imprinted into the book's cover.en_US
