Twenty-six fables take up the last sixteen pages of this beginning reader. This telling of The Fox and the Ass (129) forms the perfect setting for O si tacuisses. In The Husbandman and His Sons (129), the husbandman said that the treasure lay within a foot of the ground's surface. The Hawk and the Farmer (130) is new to me. WS (132) is told in the poorer form. FC (136) handles the flattery well by making the fox's praise of the crow's voice at first middling; the crow then wanted to set him straight. The traveler's remark in MSA (138) is “You are better able to carry it than he is to carry both of you.” The old man throws the ass into the river. “The Tongues” (141) is included, with Aesop and Xanthus as the main characters. The book was purchased in 1906 by the Edgerton Public Schools.
