Here is a handy little volume of sixty fables. It might be serve as a good indicator of which fables people were expected to know around the turn of the century. The cover promises Explanatory Notes but I find none. In fact, there is but a two-page introduction besides a title-page and the sixty pages of fables. A worm ate a large chunk out of the upper portion of the first fourteen pages! There are about seventeen illustrations; several seem to be derived from Weir. This is a specimen copy given with the compliments of the publisher. Canvas binding with stiff boards.
