Literary Fables, from the Spanish of Yriarte.
London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longman, 1851. 200 pp. 12mo. English translation of Don Tomas de Yriarte's "Fabulas Literarias." Handsome leather-bound volume, with gilt decoration and five raised bands to spine, gilt textblock, dentelle edges, and marbled endpapers. Very light edgewear to boards, light spotting to covers, chip missing from title label. Small personal library sticker to spine, evidence of bookplate removal to fpd. Light foxing to endpapers, very light foxing to scattered pages. Interior otherwise clean. "The 'Fabulas Literarias' combine a novelty of application which distinguishes them from every other collection of fables; for, as their name implies, they refer solely to literary matters, and . . . embody a code of laws expressly framed for the government of authors."
