dc.description.abstractHobbs gives 1860 as the date of the first edition of this work, by Routledge. Perhaps this is a first or second American edition. She rightly calls these wood engravings sensitive. I think they are among Weir's best work. It also seems to be his earliest published work. The book's format is small (5¼ x 6¾) the illustrations occupy a full page each, and the print is large and bold. The book seems well conceived for younger readers. Unfortunately, the book lacks 65-112 and the ten illustrations contained in those pages. There is fairly frequent foxing and staining. Among the best illustrations are CJ (frontispiece and 19), DS (11), The Eagle and the Fox (57), The Dog, the Cock, and the Fox (179), and The Kid and the Wolf (209). The Lion and the Bulls (65), FS (142), and The Wolf and the Horse (159) have been garishly colored. Inscribed in 1866. There is a list of illustrations at the front and an AI at the back. A quick search does not reveal the source of the texts.en_US
