This is an unpaginated children's book 7 x 9. It contains several fables: OF (#16); The Hare and the Frogs (#20); and DS (#25). The frog in OF puffs so well that he is nearly as big as a bull. He bursts so completely that they are able to find no scraps of him! Though the illustration of The Hare and the Frogs is for the usual fable by this name, the text is really a version of TH, in which the hare sleeps twice in his race with a frog. I think the writer and editor here may not have worked too closely together! In DS, the flow of the water made the shadow of the meat look much larger than the real piece he carried. A young writer did plenty of practice on the open spaces of many of the pages here. He or she also numbered the stories. The book is in poor condition. The binding is so loose that the front cover is almost severed. The colored cover shows a young woman teaching her dog and dolls. Inscribed at Christmas, 1894.
