Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Fables

The second series of sixteen fables was also published in one volume quarto, dated 1738. The title is - Fa61es. By the late Mr. Gay. Volume the Second. Printed for J. And P. Knapton in Ludgate Street, and T. Cox under the Royal Exchange. MDCCXXXVIII. The text is preceded by the Advertisement reproduced at p. 134 of the present edition. There is a frontispiece representing Gay's tomb in Westminster Abbey, with Pope's epitaph as printed at p. Xxx of the foregoing Introduction, and the title-page vignette is a medallion portrait of the poet. Both of these are drawn by Gravelot, and engraved by Scotin. The full-page illustrations are also by the same artist and engraver. Concurrently with its issue as a quarto the volume appears to have been published in octavo form, and in the same year Tonson and Watts brought out an octavo edition (the fourth) of the first series. There are numerous subsequent issues, but the only ones which need be noticed here are the little volume of 1779, which contained some of the earliest woodcuts of Thomas Bewick, and Stockdale's large edition of 1793, which includes, inter alia, no less than nine plates, both designed and engraved by William Blake.
