dc.description.abstractI am delighted to see that this series brought back an author and an illustrator so important earlier in the tradition but not known well now. I may have more copies of these two men's work than of any other pair. Both texts and illustrations seem to be exactly what Townsend and Weir offered eighty years earlier. I took for comparison the 1883? Three Hundred Aesop's Fables by the two from McLoughlin Brothers; really that edition contains 310 fables, and like many of their editions of both 300 and 350 fables, it has 114 illustrations. This edition seems to drop eleven fables (the flyleaf incorrectly states that this 1964 edition contains 292 fables) and eight illustrations. I count 299 fables in the book and 300 in the AI at the end and am afraid that if I try to resolve the discrepancy, I will go crazy or spend the whole summer! The illustrations here are typically dark.en_US
