As yet undiscovered editions of Griset's work continue to appear. In this case I am particularly grateful. This is a very nice book in very good condition! Its 422 pages, including an AI at the end, are very compact. The printing of Griset's illustrations, with the exception of the dark The Owl and Grasshopper frontispiece, is bright and exact. Another special feature of this edition is the lovely gold-embossed illustration of WC on the green cloth cover. The usual note at the end of the preface mentions that one-hundred-and-thirty fables have been added to those in the first and second editions. There are some fifteen pages of advertisements for Cassell's books at the back. The extra copy, in less good condition, has red cloth on its cover, with the same embossed illustration of WC. Its first regular illustration--of two frogs--is garishly painted.
