The story here is on 6 to 21 of this booklet with circled page numbers. The clever fox and the dumb ass become friends, but when they encounter a lion, the fox offers to deliver up the ass. He does so by getting the ass into a ditch. When the lion sees that the ass is caught, he devours the fox. Perhaps the best illustration is that reproduced on the cover: the surprising appearance of the lion terrifies the ass, but the fox immediately starts plotting (12-13). This is one of five booklets from this series ordered from The Book Depository in the UK. I suspect that some further members of the series will elude me.
