This book replicates another in the collection. I believe it is the older of the two. It has a large circular seal imprinted in the back cover, whereas the other copy has a rectangular seal. This classroom reader has some five Aesopic fables and Emerson's Fable. The Honest Woodman (24) has a black-and-white illustration showing the water fairy. The Old Man and the Donkey (165) has a nice black-and-white illustration of the father and boy together on the beast. My other copy is in excellent condition, but I think a good book detective could show that this is the older book.
