This book is interiorly identical with another copy done by Burt for which I have guessed the same year of publication. This copy has a distinctive white cover picturing FS. Like other Burt editions, it adds Heighway's work to the frequently used JBR text marked by a preface ascribed to JBR and often including an extra set of fables, here beginning on 198 and not including any illustrations. I have noticed this time that this text has the beaver biting off his tail, not his testicles (69)! It is also the first time that I have noticed Heighway's unusually strong depiction of The Envious Man and the Covetous (84, Avaricious and Envious in standard Jacobs/Heighway editions).
