dc.description.abstractThis is a vintage Croxall edition in good form from about the middle of the long period during which this edition dominated the fable market. The frontispiece is now engraved by Nesbit. The title-page keeps the changes I had noted in the 1778 eleventh edition. Though the fables again consume 329 pages, as they did in the eleventh edition, the typesetting seems to be new. Hobbs (84-5) speaks at length of Kirkall's white-line technique. She also notes that improved printing techniques after 1800, together with John Lee's retouching of the plates, meant that later impressions were better than any since the mid-eighteenth century. The book was published in as many as two hundred editions and remained in Hobbs' view the most significant children's fable collection for 150 years after its publication--perhaps because for the first time in England every fable was illustrated, and because it was cheap. There is a wormhole around the page numbers of 1-28. As Abbey mentions, this is a clean, crisp copy with excellent impressions. If the inking of some is faint, the details still come through wonderfully!en_US
