This sixteen-page pamphlet about 7 x 7½ has lively illustrations inside covers that show a good deal of wear. From the title-page on, the lion has a pince-nez that is slipping off of his nose. He acquires bandages on his paws and body as he goes along. At last he faces the ass and says I wanted to die. But to suffer your blows is double death. This fable is not presented very frequently. I am surprised to see it get its own booklet here.
