    Beautiful! The book is heavily illustrated with illustrations by Arthur Rackham, Walter Crane, and Ernest Griset. There are over 50 full page illustrations, and there are in text illustrations on about every second page. The pages are thick, there are hundreds of stories (Aesop's fables are seldom more than a page long) and each page of text is prettily framed in a scrolled boarder. I think that this is the nicest B&N leather bound book that I have bought so far.

    This is by far the best purchase I have ever made from Barnes and Noble. The pages are exquisitely detailed with lovely illustrations. The cover is beautiful. It's worth the money just to use it for the aesthetic value. However, what's inside is even better. The quality of the printing is beautiful. Everything is in a clear, easy-to-read font. Lastly, the moral of every story is located right after it, which can be great for kids.

    No description, no inside view, no contents. The title caught my interest so I clicked the link. All great customer reviews unfortunately that's not enough. No wonder B and A is looking terribly to Amazon...
