MetadataShow full item record
This is an extra copy of the first printing. Here is a brand new reworking of both McGovern's texts and McClaskey's art. A livelier TH cartoon cover replaces the more classical FG on the earlier two covers. There is a clear reference to the text as copyrighted in 1963 by McGovern, but the very first fable evidences several changes. The first sentence changes "A hungry fox stole into a vineyard" to "A hungry fox snuck into a vineyard" (3). This edition uses only black-and-white internally but livens up the page with more dramatic backgrounds and typefaces. This book in format is uniform with the later and smaller "Apple Classics" version of the book. That series is not mentioned here. The price of the book has gone from the original's "$.45" to the Apple Classics' "$2.75" to the present $4.99. "About Aesop" in the earliest version was the first element a reader met after the title-page. In the Apple Classics version, it was at the book's back. Now it has come back, slightly modified, as "Introduction" at the front.
