MetadataShow full item record
Inscribed in 1863. Good condition. This little volume uses the title, title-page design, and other elements from previous The Little Esop works that I have listed under 1844, 1846, and 1848. But the book has been reconceived. Formerly 191 pages long, it is now 96 pages. The page size is slightly larger, 3 x almost 4. The illustrations are the same, but now each is surrounded by one of four or five standard printers' frames. Even the texts and versions are the same, though the typesetting is new. This copy of the book is in good condition, but the illustrations have bled through onto the text pages. Notice that the cover and spine have Little Aesop while the title-page has The Little Esop.
