dc.description.abstractThis little book rewards some study. The first fables, through 78, repeat verbatim the texts of Jefferys Taylor in his 1821 Aesop in Rhyme, with Some Originals. From what I can tell, later stories in this book that repeat subjects also found in Taylor's book, like FK (101), do not use Taylor's texts for those stories. I note some changes of punctuation (e.g., line 1 on 54), in texts taken from Taylor. There is also a title-change in DS (49) from The Dog of Reflection there to The Dog and the Shadow here. With 288 pages, this little book tells a great number of fables! After the fables there are fifteen pages of advertisements for Henderson's books. Before the fables there are two beautifully colored pre-title-pages, one showing FS in a central panel and the other showing a bald man, presumably Aesop. The back of the title-page shows the volume entered in an Eastern Pennsylvania Clerk's Office in 1852. That is the same year of an apparent first edition in Collection X (F-0634). It sounds identical to this volume with the possible exception that it may be slightly larger in page size. The illustrations are in various simple formats and are never larger than a half-page. They are not those used in my 1823 or 1828 editions of Taylor. Gilt page edges, gilt embossing of a scene of the lion surrounded by animals on the cover, with FS inside a floral border on the spine under Aesop in Rhyme.en_US
