I am very happy to get a copy of Rundell's version, quoted by Hobbs on 102. The Griset illustrations are well done here. Still, this book's special offering lies in the four full-color illustrations. These often render a scene that Griset has already done in black-and-white, and often lie far from their respective stories. They are of the lion, ass, and fox (frontispiece); WL (facing 90); TB (154, the best of the group, I think); and WC (210). Note that more than one bear is involved in the encounter with the travellers. No T of C or index. By contrast with two other copies that are bibliographically equivalent, this copy has a green cloth cover with a variety of animals. The spine shows King Stork.
