3/4 dark brown morocco, the original binding wit hvey nice gilt design on the spines and a bright gilt title. Marbled boards and matching endpapers. Tight hinges, but the leather on the front hinge is beginning to wear. This collection of Aesop is "Selected, Told Anew and Their History Traced by Joseph Jacobs". Charming drawings, but a few are marred by light crayon by a child that we can hope was spanked, even though the colors are appropriate and within the lines. Despite this fault, an excellent Aesop collection, both an antique book and a modern rendering.
