Aesop's Fables.

Rackham, Arthur (illus.)

London: Heinemann, 1912. Quarto. xxx, 224pp. FIrst trade edition. Contains thirteen color plates tipped-in on brown paper, and 53 illustrations in black & white. Translated by V.S. Vernon Jones, with an Introduction by G.K. Chesterton. Save for the smaller trim size, the trade edition is identical to the signed, limited edition in terms of number of illustrations. In a full limp leather binding stamped in blind and gilt on upper cover - a binding not noted in Latimore & Haskell. Extremely fine and fresh, still retaining its original glassine wrapper and fragile two-part decorated box, which has had some expert restoration to lid. Item #31374

(Latimore & Haskell, pp. 38-39).
