dc.description.abstractCompare this book with my 1761 first edition, done by Stockdale in Birmingham. See my comments there. This copy lacks the frontispiece and has experienced some repairs. It is rebound in vellum covered boards, slightly bowed, with labels attached, including a brown illustration of FG on the cover. There is some cartooning, e.g., on the title-page of the Ancient Fables section. 131-34 are missing. The illustrations, which have often seen extensive wear, seem to imitate those of the first edition--rather than to be later impressions of them. Compare the illustrations for BF (Ancient Fables 8), for example. The illustrations meant to face Page 198 occur rather in the middle of the index. A young hand painted with blue all the illustrations facing 108. This little book breathes a sense of history.en_US
