This reader contains many fables, most with one or two simple illustrations of two or three colors: nine from Aesop (43-63), three Hindu (91-105), and four Russian (160-68). Good illustrations present a LM handshake (44) and an ant tipping its high silk hat to the dove (57). In The Honest Woodcutter (45), the dishonest woodcutter, having been refused the gold axe, asks for his regular axe back. Get it yourself is Mercury's blunt reply. WC (49) is presented as a dialogue. New to me among the Hindu materials is the good story The Shoe (and the owl, 97). See 1916 for my copy of Book One and 1914 for Book Four.
