Questo può ritenersi come un libro prezioso per le sue tavole in N° di 142 precedute da un bellissimo frontespizio intagliato. Tom. Dudley allievo di Bollar scolpì e mise la sua marca nelle tavole della vita di Esopo. Le favole non sembrano di suo intaglio, quantunque assai ben eseguite con gusto pittoresco. Quest’edizione è soprattutto rara in Italia.
