Surprisingly dependent on fables. There are thirteen fables among the eighty-four story-lessons. Nine of the fables have strong small illustrations. The Goat and the Fox (19) comments on animals' language and on truth-telling in stories. This first fable involves the loss of the goat's vaunted beard. TH (52) is done in verse. In TMCM (63), the two rats have many close escapes. The author is puzzled by the adder's behavior in The Countryman and the Snake (111). Different: The Ant and the Butterfly (134) where the tradition calls for a cicada or grasshopper. The best illustration: The Countryman and the Snake (111). A very nice find!
