A very nice run of Griset and Croxall. The plates are identical with those in my Aesop's Fables (1893?) by Cassell. This book, I would guess, is the inexpensive reprint of that. Only the paper (cheaper here), the title page (mentioning a specific number of illustrations), and the cover are different. The cover illustration is a nice rendition in red, blue, and gold of McLoughlin's own TMCM colored picture, which can be found as frontispiece in McLoughlin's Aesop's Fables (1900?). It is a lucky day when one can pull into Carson City for a few hours and find a nice book like this one!
