The Fables of Jean de la Fontaine. Translated into English Verse by Edward Marsh.

London: William Heineman, 1931.

Gooden, Stephen. First Edition thus, No. 102 of 525 copies, signed by Marsh and Gooden. With 26 engravings on copper by Stephen Gooden. 2 vols. 8vo. Original full vellum, uncut; apart from the usual light vellum discoloration, a fine copy. Item #314584

A superb book, widely praised on publication and reappearing in subsequent, simpler formats. Marsh has caught perfectly La Fontaine's wry, witty commentary on human affairs and foibles, while Gooden's engravings, printed directly from the plates, are unrivalled in their felicity.
