A Greedy Dog/The Gold Ax and the Silver Ax
The first story adds a first small dog, from whom the meat is stolen. Good lively cartoon work in the Disney tradition. The righthand pages are full illustrations, while the left present the text with one telling symbol. ...
Ants and Grasshoppers/Three Oxen and a Lion
Here there are three grasshoppers instead of the usual one. The ant's last word is Just go on singing now. The lion--in the African savanna--gets the oxen arguing among themselves. Good lively cartoon work in the Disney ...
A Mouse's Wedding/A Fox and Grapes/An Ant and a Dove
Good lively cartoon work in the Disney tradition; here the first story has particularly good illustrations. A find in my one day in Singapore!
(Harper & Brothers, 1927)
I had found what I thought to be a first edition of this book earlier from Greg Williams. This copy is, like that, a pictorial black cloth octavo with a colored frontispiece and three other full-page colored illustrations. ...

I am surprised that I had not known of this book earlier. It presents thirty Aesopic fables in prose, each on a left-hand numbered page with a design on the facing right page. The pages are made of very heavy paper, and ...
