dc.description.abstractThe original of this book was published in 1894 by Macmillan. It has been reprinted quite often, for example by Schocken. This is the best facsimile reprint I have seen. Heighway's brilliant black-and-white work comes alive again here! This copy is in very good condition. I love Heighway's work! There are 220 pages, followed by a two-page AI. Like the original, this book gets going with a left-page frontispiece of two scenes showing FS; a title page with ornate left and right borders; a right-page dedication to Prof. F.J. Child; a preface signed by Jacobs beginning on the right page (ix) and ending over a design on xii; a Contents page; A Short History of the Aesopic Fable (xv-xxii); List of Fables (xxiii-xxv) including eighty-two fables numbered here but not in the text; a left-page showing a hand holding a mirror's reflection of a demon and a right page with a framed scroll of a title (The Fables of Aesop); and finally The Cock and the Pearl (2-3). As in the original, the illustrations, titles, and closing designs are very distinct. Among the best are The Hart & the Hunter (64), The Fox & the Cat (90), The Shepherd's Boy (103), The Four Oxen & The Lion (123), and GGE (134). My, what searching around Powell's won't turn up!en_US
