dc.description.abstractI had noted this book sitting on Midway's shelf for years. I once recommended it to the Heffelfinger collection in Minneapolis. I never realized that it was Joseph Jacobs' own copy. I am now especially delighted to add it to the collection. The book has almost no illustrations. It is helpful for deciphering Caxton's English. I have three other copies of this book. Two are original 1889 paperbound copies, from William Allen and Ed Chesko, respectively. I also have a Burt Franklin reprint. I comment there: Do not miss the index (225) and especially the synopsis (229). There is a good pedigree of Caxton's Aesop facing 1. This volume has been largely uncut. There is a tear at the top of the spine.en_US
