dc.description.abstractThis is one of those little books with a long sub-title: Selected for their moral tendency and re-written in familiar words, not one of which exceeds two syllables; designed as reading lessons to amuse and instruct. There are fifty fables on 89 pages. About a quarter to a third are nicely illustrated with small engravings. The first three have been painted. Several stories are new to me: the lion speaks against his cub when the latter brays proudly; he has loved the company of asses (8). The turkey who loves to eat ants but complains of men who kill turkeys is admonished to think of her own sins (41). The first story of a wolf and lamb (12) involves the silly lamb jumping over the fence to eat grass with the grass-eating wolf. The more usual version of WL occurs on 63. Inscribed in 1836 and 1840. The bottom of the cover over the spine is torn.en_US
