Here is an extra copy of this book. A curious reworking of Stickney and Ginn's Child's Version of Aesop's Fables (1891) with a new artist, whose illustrations are rather standard. The text seems basically the same; WL changes the lamb's sex to female. At 197 there is one fable from LaFontaine (down from fourteen), and at 201 there are seven from Krilov (down from twenty). A curious appendix redoes the first twenty-eight fables in a shorter form more appropriate to adults.
