I am surprised that I had missed this sturdy 538-page paperback. I am glad to find it now. Besides providing a full text of the fables, it offers more copious notes--ninety pages worth--than the usual paperback edition. The introduction to this edition is also lengthy, running to thirty pages. There are no illustrations. There is both an AI and a TofC at the back. There are occasional written notes in the book, which is otherwise in good condition.
