Here is the first of two extra copies of this contemporary Classics Illustrated. I have searched in vain for a first edition of this comic book and have had to content myself with a copy of the second edition. How nice to find a first edition--and apparently a first printing at that--among Clare Leeper's books! Notice that the publisher changed from one edition to the other. There are slight changes in the inside front-cover: apparently the Literary Volunteers of American no longer support the goals of Classics Illustrated! There are also changes on the back of the title-page, since the people involved in the two publishers are different. The logo for CI has changed to include two colors. The fables here seem to be unchanged. See my comments in the write-up of the second printing. The lettering on the title-page here has Patrick for Owsley's name. Earlier I had listed this book under 1990, following the (apparently false) information in the second edition that the first edition had appeared in June, 1990. This edition is clear in stating June, 1991, and I will follow that from now on.
