Here is an even cleaner copy of a slightly different version of a book already in the collection. The back cover there pictured various fairy tale characters with some information at its center. Here the background is plain blue, without figures. The information is repeated but adds both a McLoughlin logo and Made in the U.S.A. I wrote there that I was delighted at last to have a good, clean copy of this curious little book, which spells its title three different ways: I use here the correct version on the cover rather than the interior title's Folks' or the title page's Folks. The twenty-five fables are listed in the T of C, but there is no pagination. Standard two-color illustrations. Spilled milk and lost eggs are pictured in the same scene. The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing makes the wolf's mistake his attempt to sound like a sheep while he is stealing. Striking morals: Do not wish your own misfortunes upon others for FWT and Give me liberty or give me death for DW. In the Blake copy, there is pencilling on the front endpapers and in LM.
