Fables of La Fontaine

Translated from the French by Elizur Wright, Jr.
This is a second identical copy of a book first given me by Liz Willems eighteen years earlier -- except that this copy has a blue cover, where that one's cover is pink, or more probably faded red. As I wrote then, the book is internally identical with an 1879 Knox version. Even the gold stamp on the cover is the same, though the cover's background design is different. Note the 1879 James Miller copyright (facing the preface) that both these copies share with the Knox version. Notice the repeated image used on both 7 and 39. Title-pages for each book are unpaginated and placed between books. Strangely, the title-page for Book 1 comes before the book's title-pages. There is an AI at the end.
