Dialogues of Creatures Moralised. Being Ancient Fables, Curious to the Philologer, Interesting to the Lover of Natural History and Helpful to the Moralist.
1967. Kentfield: Allen Press, 1967. Small folio, [103] ff. With 122 woodcuts. Original tan backstrip and pictorial cloth boards, slipcase, as new. § Limited to 130 copies printed by hand in Goudy types on handmade Italian paper. The most ambitious work of the press to that date and the final book printed on their Acorn-Smith handpress due to the acquisition of a Columbian. The text of the fables first appeared in 1480, printed in Latin by Gerard Leeu at Gouda, Holland. All 122 of the charmingly naive woodcuts from the first edition are used, printed in six outline colors. Joseph Haslewood's introduction to the 1816 edition is used here as the preface. Allen Press, Bibliography 31.
Bookseller: John Windle Antiquarian Bookseller [U.S.A.]
