A curious, pretty, expensively-bound book with leather and gilt and a sewn-in place-mark. I will be interested to compare it to the edition that Franklin did two years earlier with the same authors (and the same translations?) but with the illustrations of Grandville. Here there is a a new title-page illustration and frontispiece by Kevin King. The title-page makes the same mistake with Townsend's name as the earlier edition did. There are only eight of Bennett's individual illustrations here (out of a possible twenty-two) and the frontispiece of Man at the Court of the Lion.
