Farmyard Fables, or, A Chicken Fête.

Anderson, Verne (illus.)

Philadelphia and Minneapolis: Dargonet Press (i.e. Dagonet Press), (n.d.). Large octavo. (24)pp. One of sixteen copies. Signed by Anderson after the title page, and by the designer and printer, James Engelbart, at the colophon. Anderson's nine woodcuts of chickens appear opposite nine original fables. Each of these is followed by a tongue-in-cheek moral statement, such as "Handsome is admirable, but fear keeps you from getting pecked on" and "You should always know who your friends are and how to make a good chicken soup" (a recipe for chicken soup concludes the volume). The name of the press has been misspelt on the title page. Bound in full green silk with a woodcut inset to upper cover. Handsomely housed in a matching drop-back box lined in paper decorated with a repeating pattern of woodcut chicks, and protected in a four-flap card chemise. Unrecorded in OCLC. Item #31017

Price: $500.00
