This book is almost a facsimile of the edition I have listed under 1910? from the World Syndicate Publishing Company. The division of material per page seems exactly the same, but the typeface is different. Occasionally, a careful eye can see that the words are not exactly aligned as they were in the original book. I found this book by chance in the first store I located on a short expedition during a convention break. Its surprising feature is that the face of Abraham Lincoln is wrapped around the covers and spine. I have no notion what Abe Lincoln has to do with fables. Is he meant perhaps to represent traditional wisdom? In contrast to that earlier edition, this one drops the early AI. Neither has anything following 181. The surprises never end!
