dc.description.abstractThis book is close to three others in the collection: Miller 1865, Allen Brothers 1870, and Miller 1890?. Since it is inscribed in 1879, I have guessed at a date of 1875. It is larger in format than those books, namely 5½ x 7¾. Its pages are much thicker; this book is 1¾ thick. Its spine reads Aesop's Fables and Blue Jacket Series. I cannot find mention of this series elsewhere in the book. This book has a different frontispiece: a hanging cat. Though it is unsigned, the illustration looks to me like the work of Weir. What this book has in common with those includes the same cuts from Croxall's fuller applications. With them, it drops some of the usual Croxall features before the fables, namely the dedication to Halifax and the patriotic preface. There is also a three-page essay Aesop and His Fables and a beginning AI. The illustrations are again framed rectangles generally including a corner-cropped image or sometimes an oval. Not all fables are illustrated.en_US
