Two fables find their way into this little book: The Lark and Her Young (47) and Trying to Please Everybody (MSA, 73). The latter has a distinctive and lively illustration. This book is in terrible condition: one missing and many torn pages, foxing, a weak binding, and coloring all help to keep its value down! There are strong engravings of children in this book. Some child has written on 238: Do let me sleep ! The binding now exposed shows a fascinating use of a small iron bar, heavy mesh, and nails.
