I am delighted to find at last an early Detmold; the good copy is inscribed in 1912. The colored illustrations are lovely. Apparently the frontispiece (TMCM) is missing in both copies. The illustrations are separately printed and pasted in. The combination of cardboard and paste has some of the illustrations waffling. The cover and spine of Aesop teaching are beautifully imprinted. I notice that Detmold follows Babrius' version of The Monkey and Her Children.
