This book is almost identical internally with an edition I have listed under 1848/1890? This edition does not have either the pliant spine of that book or its frontispiece engraving of Aesop narrating his fables. Instead it has blue and green covers (the back cover is separated) with some gold floral designs. It has dropped reference to the Ariel Press and instead belongs to the series of Knickerbocker Nuggets. It has better runs of the small but fine Tenniel illustrations. This little nugget has knocked around in its time!
