The Lion and his Breath
This lion's breath is bad from eating animals. The lamb and wolf make the standard negative and positive answers. After the smell of wolf's blood brings him to the lion, the fox escapes by claiming that a cold has robbed ...
The Naughty boys and the Frog
We would usually expect the plural in this title. In this version, a young frog steps forward before the boys can throw anything. He announces that what they are about to do may be fun for them but is not fun for the ...
The Eagle, the Wildcat and the Sow
Different: this version has the young dying one by one in nest and hole and being thrown or put out, where the wildcat eats them one by one. This booklet represents one of the cases in which the configuration of the title ...
The Lion and the Boar

Aesop's Fables: New Series: Books for the Bairns.-XXVI
(Review of Reviews Office, 1899)
This is a hard-cover version in better condition than the pamphlet version I have listed under the same title, publisher, author. That listing is under 1899?. Besides the hard covers, this copy has different advertisements ...
