Fredrick Warnes  London. 1880 Decorative Cloth. Book Condition: Very Good.Third edition  Illustrated with "  one hundred and ten  illustrations", artist unknown. Translated by  by Samuel Croxall and sir Roger L'estrange with applications  by Rev Townsend and L Valentine . This has been sympathetically restored during its life with new end papers and spine using  the original boards with the spine overlaid and as such the text block is tight

Each of the 110 Fables has a header illustration and an application. Bound reddish-brown cloth, titled in gilt to the spine and extensively decorated in blind to both boards. Binding is moderately shelf-worn especially at the tips, somewhat soiled and with a small patch to the lower board that has lost some of its colour, probably from contact. The text block is quite tight and clean with soiling just to the odd page, . No publication date but probably the third quarter of the nineteenth century. Croxall's translation, originally published in 1722, quickly became the standard and has been reprinted many times often augmented with illustrations by well known artists.
