I have at least four other Lupton editions. All use the same text for the fables. All begin the text of a group of later fables on 159. All four lack a page 157-8. Among those four copies, this book is most similar to that which I have listed under 1900? They share the same promise of Illustrated on the title-page with no illustrations given. (The other three neither promise illustrations nor deliver them.) Though this Stratford edition is printed on cheap paper, it goes one step further than that 1900? edition by including a T of C and an Editor's Preface, but perhaps those elements are simply missing in that copy, which begins fables right after the title-page on a page numbered 33. Besides the name Stratford Edition, one thing is unique about this blue-covered edition. It includes a page 157-8. On 157 there is simply Later Fables, and on 158 there is nothing. That Later Fables has a partially broken second L. This fact could help some later comparisons. Lupton is now at No. 65 Duane Street.
