This is a mid-size (5 1/2 x 7 1/2) pamphlet of twelve pages containing ten large sepia illustrations, each above a fable, a moral, and a comment on Mrs. Winslow's syrup. The patterns for the earliest illustrations here come from stock trade cards advertising J.P. Coats thread and other products: The Swan and the Goose, TH, GGE, The Fighting Cocks and the Eagle, CP, FC, and OF. Three of the images seem rather to be modeled upon someone like Rountree: The Dog and the Hare, The Kid and the Wolf, and FG. Alas, I cannot find similar illustrations in Rountree yet! There is a great quotation on the back from a young mother: Grandmother used it for her babies,/Mother used it for her babies, and now/I am using it for my baby. A space is reserved at the bottom of the back cover for Druggist's Rubber Stamp.
