dc.description.abstractHere is a small book (4 x 6) in poor condition. Green cloth covers. The spine has a gold title, a tall figure of Aesop the teacher and a student (?), and One Hundred Illustrations. The front cover has a floral cornucopia. Both covers have handwritten 1852-222-06. The spine is crumbling. The early Contents is really an AI. The engravings after Bewick are about 2½ x 1½ with the same wavy-line border around each. Each text is followed by a short Reflection. A cursory check suggests that the texts are not from Croxall. Though this book is published only in NY, the fisherman on 7 is fishing on the banks of the Thames. Page 11-12 is missing a portion. 35-36 are lacking. Whole groups of pages have become detached. I am happy to be involved in saving a tired old book like this one! Of course I have the sense that I have a very near parallel of this book but have searched thoroughly and come up with nothing close. Should not Engravings from Bewick read Engravings after Bewick?en_US
