The Fables of Aesop, illustrated by Edward J. Detmold
This brilliant new hardcover version of Aesop's timeless tales offers a fresh take on the classic 1909 Hodder and Stoughton edition. Newly reset and decorated with ornate borders and running heads, this edition features more than 300 of the legendary fabulist's brief but pithy morality tales. The stories are further embellished by 23 full-page color images and numerous black-and-white drawings by illustrator Edward J. Detmold, the famed Victorian artist who was highly influenced by the traditional Japanese style, the works of Albrecht Dürer, and the burgeoning Art Nouveau movement.
