dc.description.abstractI had just finished cataloguing several Gay editions when I received an offer from Edward Pollack for a set of two second editions, one each of the two volumes of Gay's fables. I am delighted to have this good copy of Volume II. I find the Gravelot illustrations strong. They take up the full page and remind one of Oudry's work. It may be that Hobbs' use of it (71) has prejudiced me in its favor, but I find The Man, the Cat, the Dog, and the Fly (69) among the best. See her good comments there. The frontispiece of Gay's grave-monument (pictured with Bodemann 110.5) seems to be missing. This is bound uniformly with the second edition of the first volume which I bought with it. It has a green cloth spine over green boards.en_US
