One of two different copies I have of this reprint, originating from different publishers. The surprising thing is that I have a third edition of L'Estrange, and neither of these books is an exact reproduction of it. The typesetting is new. Did the reproducers set the type for a whole new edition? The order of elements in this volume is this: Frontispiece, Title-Page [with the misprinted date of 1669], acknowledgement of the reprinter, AI, blank, Life of Aesop (1-30), Preface, and the 500 Fables (1-476). This edition has gilt page-edges all the way around, a green cloth cover, and a gold-on-red label Aesop's Fables on the spine. Good condition.
