A treasure I am glad finally to have. Noble illustrated Vredenburg's fables (1920?) in a different style; frankly I prefer those illustrations to these. The six colored illustrations (in one-third and two-third page segments) are in a block style with large masses of color and simple forms; the best are DS and DLS. The copious black-and-white engravings here seem to come from Tenniel; The Mice in Council is particularly good. There are no page numbers. The cover (unsigned, in a different style) does not seem to be from Noble. The cock faces not one pearl but a string of them! AI at the back.
