Here is one of my earliest Tenniel editions. From what I can gather, it should more properly be called a Tenniel/Wolf edition, since I think the reworked illustrations were already done in 1851. This book may be quite similar to my Lippincott edition printed in 1868. As I write there, this is a small-format James version of 203 fables on 208 pages, including a final AI. The spine of this book is giving way, and the cover has been rubbed thin. Are these pages printed from Tenniel's and Wolf's plates, or do they show someone else's copies of their work?
