MetadataShow full item record
Here is the first of two extra copies of this little pamphlet. This pamphlet, about 5½ square, presents cropped selections from Pinkney's larger work by the same title. There are six fables here, all but one (TH) offering a full-page illustration. TH gets a two-page spread at the middle of the book with just the figure of a turtle at the lower right. As I say of the larger book, the art sometimes reminds me of Frederick Richardson. Other fables here include GA, CP, TB, BS, and The Mermaid and the Woodcutter. This book has two crows deal with the water in the pitcher; of course, only one is successful.
