dc.description.abstractThis is one of two thinner editions that present portions of the above book. The pages here are like cardboard: thick and blottery. No T of C, index, or pagination. Thirty-three fables. Rountree's work is typically very lively. Four colored full-page inserts: the lion and the fox, the horse and rider (and stag), the cat and the fox, and the lion and the tiger with their tails tied. I do not know to what fable the latter belongs! It is not represented in the work just above. There are some fine scenes in the black-and-whites. The cock kicks away not just a jewel but a whole necklace! The tortoise who wants to fly smokes a pipe, even when he is falling. The repeating capitals are nice, especially the guitar-playing pig that is O. The texts and illustrations are identical with those in the comprehensive edition; I presume they are mainly from James. The back cover has an outside advertisement for Nestlé's milk.en_US
