dc.description.abstractHere is another binding of a book I have already in two other bindings. This time we have a standard cloth library binding from the Brooklyn Public Library. I am happy to see that it was taken out by some ten different people between 1930 and 1948. Even in a well-used book like this one, Weir's illustrations in this edition are sharp. Because it is differently bound, I will keep this book in the collection alongside the other two bindings. I include some comments from their listing. After some study of Weir in 2000, I look back on this book as a very fortunate find. The engravings (executed by either Greenaway or Butterworth and Heath) are different from the several other sets of Weir illustrations I have. The latter seem to date back to The Children's Picture Fable Book (1860) and Three Hundred Aesop's Fables Literally Translated (1865 and 1867). The illustrations here fill out a full rectangle. The texture of Weir's animals here is unusual, and there is something tableau-like, inactive, about his scenes. The best of the illustrations is, I believe, of the jackdaw and eagle (78). There are one-hunded and seven fables. There is a Tof C, with a list of illustrations, at the front. Besides the twenty-four full-page illustrations, there are the smaller designs on the title page and with the first and last fables.en_US
