Here is an extra copy of this book with its great chromolithographs, only slightly less good than the good copy. The same size as my 1880 "Aunt Louisa Series" World-Wide Fables. I am delighted now to have a good copy. There are six brilliant full-page illustrations (and some curious retellings): FS, FG (the vineyard-owning dog appears with a gun!), OF (the ox sets the dog against the upstart frogs threatening him), TMCM (does McLoughlin reprint this fancy illustration somewhere else?), DM (probably the best of the six), and "King Lion." It is saying a lot that this book is probably worth what I paid for it! The fables are in verse.
