Nine standard fables well told. FC (41) has a good text but no illustration, and DM (74) has no illustration but a good contemporary parallel for a child. The Cats and the Cheese (133), The Fox and the Goat (139), FS (156, with two lovely silhouettes), The Larks and the Farmer (195, with a mother lark that laughs when she hears on the second day that the farmer will bring his uncles and cousins), LM (201, with mice that knowingly play on top of the lion and a lion that is caught months later), Making a Cat's Paw (224, about chestnuts in the fire), and FWT (262), all with black-and-white illustrations. There is also a fable-like story of a clever fox who sends sticks down the river before he comes after the ducks with stick-camouflage (110).Good condition.
