With the 1893/93? Cassell edition, this is one of the more serious Griset editions I have. It is also one of the few that names Rundell rather than J.B.R. or nothing at all. This expensive edition in good condition is not without its problems. It seems to have only the 266 original Rundell fables, the original introduction, and the ninety-three illustrations, without the morals or T of C that most Rundell editions lack. However, I have an edition from American Book Exchange from 1880 which already has the 132 Later Fables attached. I have been doing a major Rundell project, and this is a nice text from which to have started. The page-edges are gilt all the way around. This is of course not the Cassell, Petter, & Galpin 1869 first edition. The language-lab director at St. Mary's was driving me to Niles and mentioned that this antique store might be worth stopping at on the way. We found this book within thirty seconds!
