Abstract
This seems to be an exact reprinting of the 1891 version, of which I have a copy. As I mention there, various people worked on the text, and the illustrations seem to be from Doré, Weir, and a certain F. Myrick (?). Let me expand a bit on my short remarks there. The body of the work contains 125 fables. A supplement brings fourteen verse fables from La Fontaine and eleven prose Russian Fables of Krilof. Several fables in the supplement repeat in their own way the stories that were presented in the body of the work. Thus FG occurs on 15 and again on 147. Almost every page lists several words at the top with helps for pronouncing them. This copy is in good condition. From the library of Jean Quirk.
