(Aesop). Martin, John; illustrated by George L. Carlson and W. Fletcher White AESOP'S FABLES IN RHYME FOR LITTLE PHILOSOPHERS
New York: John Martins' Book House, (1924). First edition, first printing. Hardcover. A hint of wear and rubbing (a short stretch of gilt missing from front cover border), the suggestion of splaying to covers, else a virtually fine copy; in gilt-decorated green cloth with color paste-on illustration, pictorial endsheets; no dust jacket.
Original verse re-tellings of Aesop, distinguished by the breathtakingly bold, vibrant artwork, executed in orange and black silhouettes crowding every single page; the cover paste-on in shades of blue, orange, green and black, is simply stunning.
