(Publishers' note).After the tragic death of his twin brother and collaborator, Edward Detmold concentrated his talents on books, primarily of flowers and animals: "Detmold's finest plates are those produced for The Fables of Aesop (1909), The Life of the Bee (1911), and Hours of Gladness (1912), the latter with texts after Maurice Maeterlinck, the Belgian poet, naturalist, and mystic?A painting of chrysanthemums, contained in Hours of Gladness, is a glorious acknowledgement of the artist's debt to William Morris and Burne-Jones" (David Larkin, The Fantastic Creatures of Edward Julius Detmold).

About this Item: London Hodder & Stoughton 1909, 1909. Limited first edition of 750 copies, numbered and signed by the artist. Illustrated with 25 beautiful plates in color by Edward J. Detmold, including two extra plates not found in the trade edition. Thick folio, publisherís original full white polished buckram, the upper cover artfully decorated with the original gilt pictorial designs surrounded by a frame ruled in gilt and filled with intertwined vines, the spine handsomely gilt lettered and decorated with gilt device and gilt rules, t.e.g., housed and protected in the original slipcase. A fine copy with just very light age mellowing at the spine panel, the corners fine and sharp, the plates all in excellent condition, the text-block clean and white, essentially a near as pristine copy in a protective slipcase. The slipcase with some wear as would be expected. The book profiting by the presence of the slipcase, with the white cloth remaining clean and the giltwork very bright. FIRST EDITION, LIMITED, SIGNED, NUMBERED AND SPECIALLY BOUND. This title represents, in our opinion, Detmold's very best work. The grace and sensitivity of the illustrations reflect a certain Eastern sensibility. The artistís powers in the delicate communication of natureís spirit are exemplified by these wonderful paintings, rich with the wide variety of the colours in the spectrum. This is a very fine copy of the best printing of the work, numbered and signed by Detmold. Seller Inventory # 25107

About this Item: Hodder & Stoughton, London, 1909. Leather. Condition: Near Fine. Edward J. Detmold (illustrator). Limited Edition. Aesop's Fables. London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1909. Limited to 750 copies signed by Edward J. Detmold, of which this is #532. Twenty-five full page color tipped-in plates by Detmold with lettered tissue guards. A masterpiece of illustration, and widely regarded as Detmold's finest work. 10 inches by 12 inches.

Housed in somewhat worn buckram slipcase. Spine darkened and some light spots of rubbing. Aesop's Fables, or the Aesopica, is a collection of fables credited to Aesop, a slave and storyteller believed to have lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 564 BCE. Of diverse origins, the stories associated with his name have descended to modern times through a number of sources and continue to be reinterpreted in different verbal registers and in popular as well as artistic media. The fables originally belonged to the oral tradition and were not collected for some three centuries after Aesop's death. By that time a variety of other stories, jokes and proverbs were being ascribed to him, although some of that material was from sources earlier than him or came from beyond the Greek cultural sphere. The process of inclusion has continued until the present, with some of the fables unrecorded before the later Middle Ages and others arriving from outside Europe. The process is continuous and new stories are still being added to the Aesop corpus, even when they are demonstrably more recent work and sometimes from known authors. Manuscripts in Latin and Greek were important avenues of transmission, although poetical treatments in European vernaculars eventually formed another. On the arrival of printing, collections of Aesop's fables were among the earliest books in a variety of languages. Through the means of later collections, and translations or adaptations of them, Aesop's reputation as a fabulist was transmitted throughout the world. Edward Julius Detmold and his twin brother Charles Maurice Detmold were prolific Victorian book illustrators. Edward Detmold became one of the most talented of illustrators, depicting animals and plants with an extraordinary understanding, and making use of fantasy settings of architecture and landscape. In the 1920s, he retired to Montgomeryshire with his widowed sister as companion, initially living the life of an artist but finally retiring completely from public life. He suffered a period of depression, brought on by failing eyesight, that resulted in his committing suicide, aged 73, by his shooting himself in the chest in July 1957. Signed by Illustrator(s).
