Series 78 Dore’s Masterpieces

In Format 5 books of this series (Dore’s Masterpieces) the left third of the front cover has a stereotyped decorative pattern. The right half has one of a number of background colors with the title and illustrator printed in gilt.

Today I am adding a new cover for Format 5, Book #4. This cover with other examples of this format are shown here.
