Vastly superior to the 1933 edition I have had. A real treasure! The engravings alternate between larger and smaller. The best after the title page: Death and the Woodman, The Lion in Love, The Carter Stuck, and The Young Widow. The engravings in this presentation take off by contrast with those in the 1933 reprint. See my 1933 entry for a few comments on the text.
