I am very happy to get a copy of Rundell's version, quoted by Hobbs on 102. The Griset illustrations are well done here. Still, this book's special offering lies in the four full-color illustrations. These often render a scene that Griset has already done in black-and-white, and often lie far from their respective stories. They are of the lion, ass, and fox (frontispiece); WL (facing 34 here, but 90 in the copy found at Titles); TB (154, the best of the group, I think); and WC (210). Note that more than one bear is involved in the encounter with the travellers. No T of C or index. Don Dupley had notified me to come to the sale for another Aesop; he did not know that he had this book. This copy has FC on the front-cover and Alice on the back-cover. It is inscribed in 1902. I found the two copies of this book with different covers within six weeks of each other.
