dc.description.abstractThis damaged book is very close to one I have listed with under 1773, with J. Dodsley as the publisher. That date is given on the title page there. The plates are similar but never exactly the same. In the Life of Aesop, for example, the position of the warning word for the coming page (e.g., From on xiii) is above the footnotes here but below them there. The illustrations seem the same on a sample page like that facing 94, but spaces filled in there with hatch-marks are empty here. The problem with this much-worn little volume is that all pages are lacking up to the first page of the preface. In the 1773 version, there was only one page before the preface, but it was the title-page! At least one of the pages containing twelve small medallion illustrations is missing, namely the one facing the first fable on 3. There is a good deal of writing on both endpapers, and the spine is disintegrating. The leather on these covers has lasted a while! This was a very lucky find during just a few hours in Vancouver.en_US
