dc.description.abstractA beautiful traditional Aesop that I had never had in my hand before. Excellent condition. Maybe 250 fables printed very nicely two or three to the page with no runovers. The brief versions may sometimes evidence a lack of care, and the morals are quite general. There are twelve simple but appealing full-page colored illustrations; the best of them are The Old Woman and the Doctor (24), The Old Woman's Maids (66), and MM (84). Almost all the full-page illustrations are of human events. The cover is beautifully color-engraved, and there is nice black-and-white art work around the title pages. The best of these is FS on xi. AI at front. Of the two milkmaid-cover copies, that from the Book House is lacking the frontispiece, title-page (with publication information on the back), list of illustrations, introduction, and the illustration facing 84. It has one loose illustration (facing 66) and some crayoning on 9. Otherwise it is in good condition. That from Greg Williams is missing the frontispiece and four other illustrations and is more generally in poor condition.en_US
