L'Estrange 1699 Frontispiece

1950?    One portrait postcard reproducing the frontispiece of Aesop from Roger L'Estrange's 1699 "Fables of Aesop and other Eminent Mythologists with Morals and Reflexions."  From the Walter B. Sheppard Collection at Berea College Library, Berea, Kentucky.  Berea College Press, Berea, Kentucky.  $1.33 from HipPostcard, Ocoee, FL, Feb., '23.

Aesop proudly displays "Utile Dulci" on a page.  He is surrounded by animals and birds under a large tree.  What a great connection with an important college through Aesop.  How delightful that they chose him for their postcard!
