About this Item

N.d. (ca. 1890's). Likely swiped from the 1894 MacMillan edition, edited by Joseph Jacobs, though pagination differs. Richly decorated green cloth with Art Nouveau designs to fr. board & spine blind-stamped in gilt, black & green; t.e.g., fore-edge & b.e. deckled. 255 pp.; frontis., floral t.p., numerous plates throughout from engravings. Slight cracking to glue in spots & thus binding bit relaxed, publisher's satin bookmark fraying at bottom, else A VIRTUALLY UNBLEMISHED COPY! A BRILLIANT EXAMPLE OF AMERICAN ART NOUVEAU COMMERCIAL BINDING! Surely the crispest 19th C. Aesop we have seen in 4 decades of bookselling! Though these pirated editions saw mass printings they seldom survive in collectible condition due to thrift in production. A PRIZE! Size: 12mo. Bookseller Inventory # 001227
