The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse.
A beautiful edition in excellent condition. The text is indeed after Dodsley, who presents this story as I, 30 The Court and Country-Mouse. This version changes Dodsley's female country mouse into a male, adds the court mouse's remonstration over country life and food, and adds finally the notion of the country mouse's considering overnight whether he will go to the city. Wetting whiskers in champagne is true to Dodsley. Galdone is lively, as he is elsewhere. He gives the country mouse a great smock. Whoever designed the book does a nice job of contrasting city and country in things like symbol and typeface.
