1934 Aesop's Fables. E.& W. Anstie, Ltd. Devizes. Series of 25. $76 at Murray Cards International, Cecil Court, London, July, '92.


This set redoes the Gallaher 1931 colored set using the same illustrations and texts but changing the print color of the verso from brown to black. The set also changes the design and content of the bottom portion on each verso. Here there is a simple rectangle with a black line border enclosing "E. & W. Anstie, Ltd., No. 1, Devizes." The numbering runs of course through the cards from "1" to "25." This same set was also done in black-and-white by Woods in 1937.
