Here is an extra copy of this book. A pleasing large-format book. Five of the six fables included are touched up from V.S. Vernon Jones (1912) without acknowledgement. As in Jones, the lion pursues the stag from the pool. Other fables include: FG, TH, LM, DLS, and The Fox Without a Tail. The illustrations are simple fun. The best illustrated story is The Cat on the Dovrefell. The illustrator plagiarizes too: Alice's Duchess here is taken from Tenniel.
