dc.description.abstractHere is the first of three extra copies of this book. I have wanted a Gooden Aesop since I found his La Fontaine edition (1931) four months ago. This book does not seem to mention Gooden's 1936 limited edition of 525 copies done by George Harrap using L'Estrange's version. Are this edition's twelve full plates (listed on 16) only a selection of the plates found there? The best of them are of the camel praying for horns while kneeling at a predieu (160) and of the bag-piping wolf and dancing kid (272). But the initial letters are even more fun, I think. In these Gooden shows an excellent eye for the ironic moment or detail of a story. No T of C, but there is an AI of the more-than-two-hundred fables on 311. True to L'Estrange, the versions include his long reflections after the short morals. And of course there is the life of Aesop at the beginning. This book is very nicely done, especially for the price.en_US
