FABLES OF AESOP
London Hodder and Stoughton [1909] - First edition. Illustrated with 23 tipped-in color plates by Edward J. Detmold. 4to, tan cloth with elaborate pictorial decoration in colours on the upper cover and spine. xvi, 152 pp. A cery nice copy, free of the inevitable browning to the endpapers. A VERY PLEASING COPY AND QUITE SCARCE IN THIS CONDITION. These illustrations represent, in our opinion, Detmold's very best work. Their grace and sensitivity reflect a certain Eastern sensibility. The artist’s powers in the delicate communication of nature’s spirit are exemplified by these wonderful paintings, rich with the wide variety of the colours in the spectrum. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
