This is one more in a large series of nearly identical books. Routledge published this same book with colorful covers; I have listed those editions under 1883? and 1887? Several things distinguish this book. It has a tan cloth cover, with a green illustration of FG. It lists Routledge only in NY. It has the cleanest printing of both text and pictures of all the editions I have found, including those by Cassell. These marks lead me to believe that the book might be the earliest copy I have. Other copies in this family include the Saalfield editions I have listed under 1904? and 1905? The title-page continues to display a fox speaking with a leopard. A good find!
