dc.description.abstractThe texts are taken from the V.S. Vernon Jones edition of 1912. The sixteen children who illustrate some twenty-seven fables here are listed on 5. The volume includes G.K. Chesterton's introduction. I find that introduction helpful in saying that these fables belong not to Aesop but to humanity. It is less helpful when it identifies fable by its need to include an animal and when it makes Aesop a collector of fables. The best of the illustrations, I believe, are The Cat and the Mice (39); The Boy and the Filberts (52 and cover); The Mice and the Weasels (60); and especially The Old Lion (63). I never know when an oddity like this book will show up! Congratulations to Zachary Miller who organized the printing of the book.en_US
