Here is a later printing--and better copy--of a book I have already listed under 1899/1912. Let me repeat my comments from there. There are several colored full-page inserts, but none for fables. Five fables appear, all copiously and engagingly illustrated in black-and-white. In BW (16), there are two or three false calls and one dead sheep at the end. TMCM (74) features an attack by the dog in the dining room and by the cat in the kitchen. The young man in The Boy and the Nuts (86) comments sagely at the end I might have thought of that myself. In FL (95), the young larks cannot fly at the beginning of the three-step process that goes from friends to cousins to father and son, but they can at the end. GGE (100) has a particularly good illustration; this goose produces a golden egg every day.
