Berkshire: Golden Cockerel Press, 1926. Small quarto. v, (i), 94, 1pp. A collection of Aesop's much-celebrated and much-cited fables, some illustrated with bold wood engravings by Celia M. Fiennes.

Bound quarter cloth with brown paper over boards and gilt-stamped title on spine, with dust wrapper. Spine toned, light bump to upper front corner, shallow chip to jacket spine head, otherwise near fine. Item #31434
