254pp. Octavo [23.5 cm] Blue cloth covered boards with gilt stamped titles on the spine and front board, and an illustrated paper label mounted to the front board. Illustrated endsheets. Very good. The spine is faded and very subtly rolled. The gilt stamped title on the spine is dull. The edges of the spine and covers are lightly rubbed and bumped. The covers are ever so slightly darkened, and have a handful of small stains. The front hinge is just a little weak. There is a former owner's name on the verso of the frontispiece. The pages are tanned.
The text is based upon the version of Croxall and La Fontaine. With over seventy colored illustrations by Joseph E. Dash.
