The cuts really are quaint. Notice the wonderful, sharp detail in Mother Hubbard, for example, on 1-2. There may be three fable illustrations on 70-71. There are nothing but fable illustrations on 150-61. It is certainly a shame not to have notes, for many of these woodcuts illustrate fables of which I am not aware. Hercules and the Carter, DM, and The Farmer and the Snake seem to be particularly popular. Are those the two servant-girls killing the rooster on 155? Among my favorites are the gentleman monkey (159), the master's eye (160), and the goat at the barber's shop (161). A very nice book.
