Here is a 1980 printing of a book already in the collection from its 1978 printing. The only change I can find in the book involve first the back cover, which has added two redundant mentions of the publisher and the book's ISBN number and secondly the spine, which includes now the last six digits of the ISBN number. As I wrote there, this is a pleasing large-format book. Five of the six fables included are touched up from V.S. Vernon Jones (1912) without acknowledgement. As in Jones, the lion pursues the stag from the pool. Other fables include: FG, TH, LM, DLS, and The Fox Without a Tail. The illustrations are simple fun. The best illustrated story is The Cat on the Dovrefell. The illustrator plagiarizes too: Alice's Duchess here is taken from Tenniel.
