Two volumes in One 140x108mm half black cloth marbled sides (worn to foot of spine) vii-xxi + 263pp and Vol. II iii-vii + 311pp.Aquatint plates (100), unusually, the plates are bound (51 + 49) at the end of each volume. Title pages to both volumes in facsimile. Volume I starts with Preface thus seems to lack the contents list. Volume II lacks only the title as contents pages are complete. Name stamp to margin of Preface, edge browned and some fingering & soiling, a few leaves with edge wear with 3 leaves with 3mm tears to blank margins only. A well loved and well used Aesop with charming AQUATINT PLATES. Very scarce with Oxford the only copy of this printing noted in British libraries - McGowan was printer as well as publisher and his Windmill Street address is given at the foot of the last page of each volume.
