RACKHAM, Arthur (illustrator). AESOP. Aesop's Fables. London: William Heinemann. 1919.

8vo. Original bluish-grey cloth pictorially decorated in lighter blue to spine and both boards, decorated endpapers; pp. [v], vi-xxix + 223 + [i]; with 13 fine coloured plates with captioned guards and a plethora of line drawings and silhouettes throughout; externally uncommonly fresh with only mild rubbing to spine ends, internally carefully handled though with the usual offset-browning to endpapers, a slim section (6 x 1cm) carefully excised from top edge of front free endpaper to remove previous owner's name, and quite insistent foxing to prelims, edges of book block, and sporadically within, largely confined to fore-edge margins; all plates fine.
Early edition illustrated thus, issued 7 years after the first.
