MetadataShow full item record
I had found this book earlier, but that copy did not have the four colored plates, and this copy does. They are delightful! Heavy on aqua and salmon tones, they depict OF (frontispiece), The Ant and the Fly (32), The Fox and the Visor Mask (53), and The Eagle and the Crow (67). The Ant and the Fly (32) presents an unusual and striking, if somewhat cartoon-like, view of the scene. As in the other copy, there are one hundred numbered fables on 74 pages. There are fourteen black-and-white illustrations. They are simple. As I mention there, the best of them may be for 2W (41). A check of several of the texts suggests that they are Croxall updated. The introduction says that they are from one of the oldest collections available. The language has been modernised to help the reader. There is a T of C at the beginning. This copy does not have the dust-jacket, and the other does.
