Here is an exquisite chapbook 4 x 6¾ with MSA in rhyme, specifically a sestet on every page. The treasure of this little book lies, I believe, in the four of its eight wood engravings that have the original hand coloring. At the end, the ass who fell into the river never was seen any more. There are sixteen chapbooks in the series, listed on the back cover. This is #15. Hare and many Friends is the only other fable, and it is #3.
