dc.description.abstractHere is an unpaginated, heavy, large-format (8x11) book with 24 Evergreen Tales. Each tale is sixteen pages in length and may have been a booklet on its own. Each story has a title-page without any other text than the title. Then follow pages with at least some text at the top of each. The art is simple, large, colorful, and the pages are without margins. The four oxen in the first story do stand literally with their hind quarters close, so that all four are looking and guarding their circle towards the outside. Once they have an argument they separate and are easy pickings for the lion. In FWT, right after the fox loses his tail in a trap, he proclaims that he cut his tail off. This version misses something of the fun of having another fox ask the proponent of the new tailless fashion to turn around. Distrust the advice of someone who is too keen! The lion spurns lionesses offered to him as wives but falls in love with a human girl who comes to fetch water. She hatches the plan employed by her father, who threatens the lion with harm if he does not leave. The other lions soon laugh at him. The back cover serves as a T of C.en_US
