Two sections bear directly on Aesop: Aesopus Emendatus and Old Saws with New Teeth (see T of C on vii-viii for listings). They are cynical and sardonic. Several should interest any adult audience. No illustrations. The best in the Aesopus Emendatus collection: TH, FG, The Penitent Thief, The Cat and the Youth, LM, and The Man and the Goose. I have five different printings of this book and will include them all under this one listing. They are distinguished by price and a few elements of format. The first has $1.75 in the upper right corner of the front cover. The back cover lacks price and ISBN number. It contains a number of my own markings. The second has a price of $2.50 marked, along with its ISBN number, on the bottom of the back cover. The third seems to have been distributed -- and perhaps even printed? -- for the UK only. At least a stamped marker proclaims that in the upper right of the front cover. The back cover is like that of the first printing mentioned above. It came from Midway Books in St. Paul for $5. The fourth printing has a price of $3.50 marked, along with its ISBN number, on the bottom of the back cover. The fifth rearranges the bottom of the back cover to accommodate a bar code to the right of its price of $3.95. This copy came from ElephantBooks in Gilroy, CA, for $2.96 in October, '02.
