dc.description.abstractThis is a very scarce limited edition I had been watching at Rooke Books for some time. When they offered a 40% off sale, I made the decision to go for it. Beautifully illustrated by Geoffrey Trenaman with five colour lithographs: CJ; FC; FG; "The Lion Grown Old"; and "The Ape." The latter is the La Fontaine poem about the ape who beat his wives. Dual French and English texts. With numbered blindstamp to last page 'Edition Printed by the Artist.' In a quarter morocco binding with marbled paper covered boards. Externally, in a lovely condition with only minor shelfwear. Internally, firmly bound. Bright and clean throughout. Trenaman's style is probably not my favorite, but I am delighted to get such a rare fable book! 39 pages. The frontispiece CJ may be the strongest of the illustrations, and "The Ape" the weakest.en_US
