dc.description.abstractThe special value of this reprinting of Jacobs' work lies in the dust-jacket, which is in fair to good condition. It reproduces the garishly colored frontispiece found in the many reprints that Macmillan did of the Heighway/Jacobs book. This copy fits between my 1937 and my 1945 reprints of the same book. I mention a propos of the former the gaudy coloring of the frontispiece (a red fox and yellow grass!), the thick cheap paper, and the notation on the back of the title page that there was a new edition in 1930. Like the 1945 reprint, this edition has a handy list on the back of its title-page of the sixteen reprintings of the first edition through 1929 and also of the reprintings of the 1930 new edition. The runs of the illustrations are very good. Both the dust jacket and the back of the Jacobs's page advertise The MacMillan Children's Classics and assign Aesop's fables to ages 4-6.en_US
