Abstract
This is another vintage Croxall edition from about the middle of the long period during which this edition dominated the fable market. Alas, it has lost its covers and spine. I cannot find an engraver's name on the frontispiece, which features a foreground writer and a background teaching figure, both surrounded by animals. This book belongs between my eleventh edition of 1778 and my seventeenth edition of 1805. The fables consume 329 pages, as they did in the eleventh edition and will again in the seventeenth. Some of the illustrations have become quite faint, apparently because the plates have been used for so many editions. How nice to acquire a classic edition like this so economically!
