Aesop's Fables - Pub. by A. L. Burt Oxford Series - 1923 - Illustrated


Wonderful old illustrated edition of Aesop's Fables, alternatively "The Fables of Aesop, Complete, with Text Based Upon Croxall, La Fontaine, and L'estrange, Selected from the Most Reliable Sources", published by A. L. Burt for their Oxford Series circa 1920. The publishers did not include a date. This copy has the owners name in front, dated 1923. It is also very charmingly illustrated in black and white.

Aesop was a Greek slave and storyteller c. 620 – 564 BCE. His fables were originally oral renditions, and the fables ascribed to him were not put down in print for 300 years. Over the centuries the tales have grown with new fables being added. This copy is claiming some authenticity.

CONDITION: The book is in very good condition with just a bit of bumping, a little wear to the edges of the spine, some light tanning, and a little light foxing on the edges of the pages. It has its original dust jacket, and I will include that, but the DJ is in rough shape.

SIZE: 5 1/4 inches by 7 1/2 inches.
