The Fables of Aesop
Berkshire: Golden Cockerel Press, 1926. Small quarto. v, (i), 94, 1pp. A collection of Aesop's much-celebrated and much-cited fables, some illustrated with bold wood engravings by Celia M. Fiennes. In keeping the the Golden Cockerel Press' tradition of creating limited editions of classic masterworks, this representation was reprinted from Sir Roger L'Estrange's 1692 publication, reinvigorating his translation with sharp typography and modern illustrations. Bound quarter cloth with brown paper over boards and gilt-stamped title on spine, with dust wrapper. Adhesive residue on front pastedown. Minor bumps to spine and corners and wrapper shows some foxing and toning, else fine. This particular copy belonged to Alma Ruth Lavenson, whose bookplate is laid in. Lavenson was a prolific and influential 20th-century photographer, fostering friendships with the likes of Ansel Adams, Imogen Cunningham, and Edward Weston. Her unabashed and personal photography has since inspired generations of female photographers.
