Here is an extra copy of the first edition of this book in a dust-jacket. This book offers in delightful fashion the background of phrases commonly heard in English. Aesop takes his place right after Homer with eight fables: blowing hot and cold, counting chickens, fascist, golden eggs, lion's share (illustrated; misplaced from The Lion, the Donkey, and the Fox?), shoulder to the wheel, sour grapes, and wolf in sheep's clothing (illustrated). Later sections cover TH, the bald man and the fly, the fox and the lion, and the mountain and the mouse.
