This is a lovely little softbound book in card wrappers. I am surprised I had not seen it before. Its first nice feature comes on the endpapers. Each animal is involved with this very book in a way appropriate to one of its stories. Thus the fox looks longingly at FG, and the wolf has a torn page in his mouth. The hare wears a monocle throughout. BF (about 12) is a particularly good illustration. The frontispiece gives us a rare view of the miser loving his money while he still has it. Twenty-eight fables with very pleasing illustrations.
