dc.description.abstractThis British segment begins with Fable LX on 193 and ends with LXVIII on 216. It is well preserved, without odors and with almost no foxing. I was becoming accustomed to three full-page illustrations per segment, but the full page illustrations here, well rendered, are only "The Wolf, the Mother, and the Child" and "The Lark and Her Little Ones." I have guessed a date of 1868 for this portion because advertisements speak of publications appearing late in January. In fact, to my surprise, many advertisements are for various forms of valentines, to be given of course in mid-February. There are perfumed valentines and musical valentines! Initial valentines and "mediaeval" valentines! Mounted valentines and flowery valentines! My! One advertisement hawks no less than nine series -- other than this one -- done by Gustave Doré.en_US
