The cover reads Uncle Frank's Fables for Children: The Undutiful Young Lion. First of six volumes (listed on the back cover), with pages numbered here surprisingly from 172-204. Twenty-three fables. The organizing principle seems to be the illustration on every right hand page. Small fables are filled in to complete the left-hand pages before each right hand page starts anew. The illustrations, apparently after Bewick, are fine. The selection of fables here is strongly traditional. I find only two that are new to me: The Doves and Their Young Ones (175) and The Hounds in Couples (189). Good condition. I am surprised that I have now been able to put together good copies of four of the six volumes in this very fragile set.
