A lovely little pair of books. The notice says that the warm reception of Grandville's illustrations in the 1841 original was expected, but the favor accorded Wright's translation was not! The present volumes cost 10% of the original, it claims. AI for both volumes is at the front of Volume I. Twenty-four well executed and well preserved illustrations; it is a shame that they are so small.
