$750.00

The text of this wonderfully illustrated book of stories has half-page illustrations above a syllabified letterpress text in prose, the whole printed on one side of each leaf only and the printed pages bound facing each other. The illustrations are hand-colored wood engravings. The date range of publication is suggested by Brown's London Publishers and Printers, p. 33.
