I have an apparent first printing in the collection and an eighth. Here is a ninth printing one year later than the eighth. The aquatints have changed color from the eighth to this ninth printing! There are two aquatints per story in the familiar Jacobs version: some show good wit, like the tree/stake for Young Thief and Mother on 87. There is a slightly different version and picture for Venus and the Cat on 151. Do not miss The Laborer and the Nightingale and The Ass' Brains.
