A very nice little book in good condition. Earlier I had found two editions of Tilney's LaFontaine (1913/30 and 1913/36/38) from the same series. This book deliberately omits fables included by the moderns. The texts are adapted from James and Townsend. The eight illustrations are surprisingly good, especially FG (cover and frontispiece), The Lion in Love (28), The Man and the Satyr (50), The Boy Bathing (96), and The Old Man and Death (112). There is a dramatic king stork embossed on the cover.
