Even More Robin Jacques

Readers previously unfamiliar with Robin Jacques, the illustrator of the wonderful Ruth Manning Sanders' collections of fairy tales from around the world, have been captivated by the etchings we've posted from the Book of Mermaids and in a Robin Jacques-specific post. Here's an additional treat from a Book of Dragons – the cover and the title page. Please forgive the untidiness of the scans but this edition was published in 1965 and despite being currently kept in pristine archiving conditions at home, I did obtain the book second hand at the time in which I bought it from an antiquarian book dealer in the early 90s. Enjoy!
