This book drives me crazy because it seems to be composed of things I have seen before. The frontispiece is a colored picture (the book's only one) of a wolf and a lamb, and I know I have seen it elsewhere. The top of the opening AI is from Heighway, and almost all of the illustrations are from Billinghurst, many of them crayoned in poorly by a young hand. Even the camel on 177 and the stork on 185 are done after Billinghurst. The versions are very frequently but not always from the standard J.B.R. (Rundell) collection.
