This beautiful publisher’s binding appears on a deluxe edition of short stories for children with twenty-four elaborate illustrations by the British illustrator M. J. Tilsley.  Warne often repackaged affordable individual titles as more costly compilations, a strategy copied by McLoughlin Brothers.
