dc.description.abstractI have been very fortunate to find this second, brown-covered copy of a work which I already have in defective form. As I note under that 1861 book, found at Emerald City Fine Books, Eugene, OR, by mail in September of 1998, pages 65-112 are missing in that copy. Here they are present, and so I am happy to create a new listing for this copy. The bookseller was worried that several hand-colored pages would disappoint me enough to make me reject the book! FG on 6 is multi-colored with a very dark fox, and OF on 65 has splotches of pink. Notice that I paid the same $75 for both copies of the book. Let me include some of my remarks on that copy. Hobbs gives 1860 as the date of the first edition of this work, by Routledge. Perhaps this is a first or second American edition. She rightly calls these wood engravings sensitive. I think they are among Weir's best work. It also seems to be his earliest published fable work. The book's format is small (5¼ x 6¾), the illustrations occupy a full page each, and the print is large and bold. The book seems well conceived for younger readers. This copy lacks a strip of cloth almost a half-inch high on the bottom of its spine. Among the best illustrations are CJ (frontispiece and 19), The Fox and the Goat (2), DS (11), The Eagle and the Fox (57), BW (79), TB (91), WSC (99), The Dog, the Cock, and the Fox (179), and The Kid and the Wolf (209). There is a list of illustrations at the front and an AI at the back. A quick search does not reveal the source of the texts.en_US
