Baby’s Own Aesop - Walter Crane nd. - Frederick Warne and Co., London New York A delightful edition of prolific illustrator Walter Crane’s interpretation of Aesop’s Fables, each moral tale composed and condensed in rhyme, and accompanied by a charming illustration. Engraved and printed in colours by Edmund Evans.   Walter Crane (1845–1915) was an English artist and book illustrator. He is considered, along with Randolph Caldecott and Kate Greenaway, one of the strongest contributors to the child's nursery motif that the genre of English children's illustrated literature would exhibit in its developmental stages in the latter 19th century.
