This beautiful book is from 1853. It was printed in London. It has 864 pages with 600 woodcut illustration by William Harvey. The gilt picture on the front and a little on the spine, is all the gilt on the book , not on the edges of the pages as you would expect. The impressions into the covers and spine are beautiful themselves. For so many pages the print is small. I wonder if indeed there are 1001 stories?
