dc.description.abstractThere is a section of eight fables on 115-121, six of them with good rectangular illustrations. There is a very good moral to the first, The Wolf in Disguise: There would be but little chance of detecting hypocrisy, were it not always addicted to overact its part. Others include FC, The Monkey and the Cats, The Farmer and the Snake, WC, The Eagle and the Crow, The Farmer and his three Enemies, and The Wolf and the Shepherds. The second-to-last is about a wolf, a fox, and a rabbit who were caught foraging in different parts of a farmer's yard. The hare admits eating some turnips but asks him to spare her and promises never to do it again. The fox and wolf lie and defend their actions. He executes the latter two for their hypocrisy and impudence. Might the frontispiece picture Aesop with some children? The first end-paper is missing a piece at the top; the second is torn out. The spine is weak. The seller rightly praised the section on Accidents and dangerous practices of children: illustrated by Pictures, which begins on 83. Among these, Playing with Guns and Knives and Drinking from a Hot Tea-Pot get my prizes for their illustrations!en_US
