Third of six volumes, with pages numbered consecutively (here 69-102). Twenty-five fables. Here we have The Dove and the Bee (99) instead of The Ant and the Pigeon. The organizing principle seems to be the illustration on every right hand page. Small fables are filled in to complete the left-hand pages before each right hand page starts anew. The illustrations, apparently after Bewick, are fine. Long moralizing reflections. Good condition.
