This book represents a nice version in better condition of the book I have listed under 1870? from Milner and Sowerby. Their place of business is now Halifax, whereas then it is London. The same size as that volume (3¾ x 5), this book presents a more ornate brown cloth cover with gilt spine and page edges. Internally it is identical but cleaner. The illustrations are in particularly good condition. There are no advertisements after the 296 pages of fables. Like that book, it has 211 fables, an unusual number for a Croxall edition. See my comments there. The title-page has a tortured X before its L that makes me think it says 1843, but I cannot be certain. This book has the same delightful fold-out before the title-page.
