Abstract
According to Bodemann, the text makeup of this book is the same as in the origianal 1761 edition with the exception of A New Life of Aesop. Osborne and Mozley in London had apparently issued a new edition in 1800, and this volume follows that exactly for its texts but not its illustrations. Here is Bodemann's description of the illustrations: Kupferstiche (Nachstiche). 159 Illustrationen auf 15 Tafeln, jeder der drei Sammlungsteile hat fünf Tafeln, in der Regel mit 12 Illustrationen, nur die jeweils letzte Tafel mit weniger Illustrationen. Alle mit zugehoriger Seitenzahl und Fabeltitle versehen. Each set of illustrations is bound in here its book, at 42, 88, and 136, respectively; apparently in the Metzner copy they are bound in at the beginning of the book. The exception is the last page of illustrations for Modern Fables: it occurs here as the frontispiece, illustrating Fables 49-53 of that set. Page numbers 133 and 134 have apparently been skipped through a printer's miscalculation, but there are no pages missing. 171-186 is a detailed T of C at the end. The designs on the title-page and the printer's design at the book's end are curious compositions of various smaller printing elements. Inscribed in 1820. Two tapes across the top and bottom of the leather spine. Esop is the spine's title.
