Abstract
The title is common for Croxall editions. The illustrations and publisher are new to me. 248 fables in a lovely 7 by 4.5 book with gold-embossed brown cover and spine. AI at front. Book advertisements at the front and back. A charming frontispiece includes two humans at the center and a fox with a mirror at the bottom. The illustrations are framed rectangles generally including a corner-cropped image or sometimes an oval. The illustrator has trouble with lions' faces (e.g., 219). New to me is #222, The Toad and the Ephemeron. Might some of the applications be shorter than Croxall's? Some bookseller made notes on the engraver on a separate sheet placed into the book.
