Parker, Agnes Miller (illus.)

Newtown: Gregynog Press, 1931. Quarto. (iii), 146pp. One of 250 copies. Illustrated with thirty-seven wood engravings by Agnes Miller Parker and wood-engraved initials by William McCance, her husband. This title was Parker's first collaboration with the Press. Together with Gertrude Hermes and Blair Hughes-Stanton, Parker helped to usher in a period of great illustrated editions at Gregynog, and the Esope is considered one of the masterpieces of the Press.

Minor losses to black on spine, some rubbing to extremities, else a fine copy of a book that is seldom encountered in such bright condition.
