Doré's illustrations were done in 1868 with a translation from the French by Thornbury. A beautiful book. AI at the back. The full-page illustrations are really grand. Only a few of them make the kind of shift I enjoy in FG. I have not investigated much the worthwhile source this book represents. I think the small but lovely engravings at the top of each story are too small to come out as a slide on a screen. Worth patient reading.
