This book seems to be a surprising congeries of elements from other editions. The front cover has the same central illustration of WC that was used by Donohue on its 1892? edition, which also contains the same apostrophe-less Aesops Fables on its cover. Here the colors of the cover's title are reversed. The back cover is also identical, with images of Mother Goose and various nursery-rhyme figures in red line drawings. I list the content of each beginning page of the book to make identification of parallel elements from other editions easier: Mother Goose end-papers, one blank page, a vignette on Aesop's life, a full-page illustration of a kid and a wolf with a reference to 38, a title page identical with that in Donohue's 1892? edition, an insignia of a lamp with a large D, and the first story with Aesop's Fables italicized across the top of the page. I know I have seen this italicized page-title, but I cannot find it! Forty pages of fables, concluding with The Sick Kite. The inside binding has been crudely repaired.
