Aesop's Fables are one of the most popular literary series for inspiring artists, perhaps second only to the plays of William Shakespeare. This is one of Maws series of twelve, designed for them by C O Murray, depicting the eternal tale of 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf'. The design likely originated from the late 1870's but the patented lock back indicates a slightly later manufacturing date.

Verso very clean, embossed Maw etc and badge, double lock grips.
