Product description

Flowers of Fable, Selected from the Best Sources (2nd edition, 1836) - antiquarian book
 
A collection of fables - some in verse, others in prose - by (or translated from) Croxall, Gay, Cowper, Lessing and others, intended as an aid to the improvement of young minds. The inside front cover of this very scarce antiquarian hardback book in its original binding carries an original bookseller's label for A. Playter of Amsterdam, "Dealer in English Books, and London Plain- and ornamental-Stationery".
 
Although this genuine 1830s volume shows some signs of age (see condition description below), it remains complete and fully legible, and would make a lovely addition to a collection of antiquarian juvenile literature.
