Together with the second volume, this work reproduces Eric Kincaid's Aesop's Fables of 1993 from Brimax. This book lists the Brimax copyright in 1995. As there, The Boasting Traveler illustration is the frontispiece in both volumes, but the fable does not appear in either volume! See my comments under the 1993 Brimax edition. Here we have a full-page illustration and one page of text for each of the twelve fables. One fable, SW (14), gets two illustrations and four pages. The illustrations seem to me to lack some of Kincaid's typical brash sparkle. Both volumes also feature a title-page illustration of a dog with a hare; one could ask again with justice what fable here the picture might refer to. On the back of the title-page is an introductory paragraph followed by a half-page picture of a fox. The same fox (a detail of FG on 11) dominates the lower cover here. The back cover of both volumes is identical except for color (green here); it advertises the two books of the set.
