This British segment begins with Fable LXXXIV on 265 and ends with XCIII on 288. It is well preserved, without odors and with almost no foxing. The back cover is torn and battered. The full-page illustrations include "Fortune and the Little Child" and "The Doctors." The insert advertises Dickens' "Household Words," "The Englishwoman's Domestic Magazine," "The Young Englishwoman," and "Boy's Own Magazine." Inside the front cover is an advertisement for Cassell's many illustrated series, the first nine of them illustrated by Gustave Doré.
