Though I already have a copy of this book, I was happy to find this copy in mint condition with a dust-jacket while I was book shopping in Los Angeles. As I wrote of the other copy, this is a wonderful fable collection. The last item in the book is a favorite of mine: Aesop and the Ass by Lessing. The frequent line drawings and sixteen colored illustrations by Nickless are lively; the best may be of the miller's falling ass (36) and of the mice-generals (49). There is a T of C on 6-10; the book's organization is not apparent.
