This book uses the illustrations of the Volland 1918 Fables in Rhyme for Little Folks (see my listing for 1918/24?) and puts them now with prose stories rather than the verse used there. Most fables also get new titles. In addition, the order is changed, so that now the ass from MSA is holding a (miswritten Latin?) farewell sign four fables before the book ends! Though some illustrations come out clear, I am still disappointed at how frequently the Volland illustrations end up lacking definition. The end-paper illustration here is dramatically clear!
