The frog for Hilaire Belloc’s The bad child’s book of beasts by Pat Jaffe

This week I posted an image of a wood engraving by Patricia Jaffe.  It was from a back dated journal of the Society of Wood Engravers; Multiples. It was, I believe an illustration in a book by Hilaire Belloc called the Bad child’s book of beasts; I hoped to find a copy, if not in the library. somewhere; but I hit a brick wall. Does the book exist? I would like to find out.  There is at least one other edition with another illustrator … but if the frog is anything to go but this one will be lovely!

So, no snapshot this week just a request and a frog by Patricia Jaffe from Multiples dated late 1980s.
