Aesop's Fables Told in Easy Words
This book reproduces with hard boards and a blue cloth spine the soft-covered printing I have under the same date by the same publisher. Like it, the cover's title is Aesop's Fables, while the title-page has Aesop's Fables Told in Easy Words. Griffiths calls it a first edition and mentions that it has twenty-five illustrations. The binding is repaired with tape in several places. Let me repeat the comments I made there. I have often looked down on Weir's work because so much of it appears in poorly printed editions. There is, by contrast, a great deal to like here! There are forty-four fables, with an AI at the front. Some of the best illustrations include: FG (5), The Stag at the Pool (10 and also on the cover), and The Wolf and the Lion (28). I tested two of the texts to see if there is a match with anything I have catalogued yet, and there is not.
