The Big Book of Fables

edited by Walter Jerrold

illustrated by Charles Robinson

published by Blackie in 1912

First Edition


28 colour illustrations, 100 black and white drawings, all present and wonderful

A massive book packed wirth illustrations, part of the set of three such books (Fairy Tales and Nursery Rhymes which were published in 1911)

So many gorgeoous illustrations. My favourite is a cheeky self portrait of Charles Robinson with Walter Jerrold which accompany a new fable at the back of the book addresses to literary critics "Against the hard to suit"
