Eleven stories, five of them in verse in this sideways book. Only one side of each page is used. The first and last stories are four pages long; all others are six. This edition keeps the dialect language. I recognize only one of these stories ( How Brer Rabbit Got a House ) after reading the original Uncle Remus, His Songs and Sayings (1880). Especially with the 1906 copyright, could it be that these stories are from one of Harris' later Uncle Remus books? Excellent colored illustrations. Some pages have two illustrations and some only one. There are some crayon markings on the title-page and on the second page of How Mr. Lion Lost His Wool. Some pages are chipped or torn. The first story-page is upside-down. Both covers have come loose from the binding. Finding this beautiful book convinced me for some reason to put a few editions of Brer Rabbit stories into this collection. That may not be my most logical decision ever, but I am glad to have found the book! I wonder who did the illustrations.
