Description
A book of 145 enchanting popular fables, in text and verse, presented in a luxurious clothbound, gold-stamped cover. Drawn from diverse sources – from Aesop to Ralph Waldo Emerson – the timeless, universal morals are highlighted at the end of each tale. This book reproduces an elegant edition published in 1912 and edited by Walter Copeland Jerrold (1865-1929). Richly illustrated with line drawings, decorations and watercolours by leading artist Charles Robinson (1870-1937), this book includes ‘The Fox and the Grapes’, ‘The Dog in the Manger’ and ‘The North Wind and the Sun’; plus less familiar tales such as ‘The Two Statues’ and ‘A Countryman and a River’. This handsome collection of fables hail from the Golden Age of children’s books and illustration.
