dc.description.abstractThis is a curious published-upon-demand book. It represents some of the features that set me against this style of book. It seems to be a reprinting, including illustrations, of a book first published in 1913. I write "seems" because the publishers do not indicate the date of the original which they are copying. The front cover presents a lively picture of the fox waiting for the crow to drop his circle of cheese. The back cover strangely reverts to a French-language commendation of La Fontaine's fables. Turn two pages inside the book and we see the erroneous title for the frontispiece "The heart of Thyrsis left" whereas the list of illustrations four pages later has the correct "The heart of Thyrsis leapt." Readers may be upset at the wandering margins, for example, in that list of illustrations. Of course the colored illustrations are here rendered in black-and-white. The original was printed, as one finds here on the title page, by London: J.M. Dent and Sons in London and by E.P. Dutton in New York. One looks here in vain for an acknowledgement of the publisher of this printing.en_US
