This edition starts with one of the longest versions of FG I have seen. Each of ten fables gets at least one full-page illustration. The illustrations have either one color or two, blending red with either black or brown. Strongest among the illustrations may be those for SW (13, 15) or for FS (22, 23). In the illustration for CP, the crow seems to be perching on the edge not of a pitcher but of a mountain! Did the publisher perhaps steal an illustration from some other book? The other stories are WL, BF, DM, Mercury and the Woodman (also on the cover and in the frontispiece), LM, and FK. The spine is weak, and the covers are coming loose. The art in this booklet is much better than I thought it would be. What a deal!
