This British first edition apparently antedates the US first edition from Harper by one year. And this copy is signed and numbered #113 of 165 numbered copies. As I wrote there, the book has witty rhyming texts. The tales may get a bit long in the telling. Many witty classical allusions are made and played with. Good stuff for the scholars and pundits around!
