This is one of four pamphlets, all 24 pages in length, which have Fables across their back cover, followed by the same brief description and history of fables. Here LM is pictured on the cover, with surrounding leaves, flowers, birds, butterflies, and insects. I discover now that the pattern of this frame is the same for all four books, though its colors change from one to the other. There are twelve fables, most told in two-page spreads. WSC (5) has a wolf that does not at all fool the shepherd. This version retains an element that seems to cling to this fable: the farmer hung him up, sheepskin and all, as a spectacle and an example (5). The Proud Raven (6) is new to me. A raven looks at the recently laid eggs in her nest and dreams of the future of her five young, when the wind blows and knocks the eggs down. None of the four booklets has bibliographical information beyond the publisher's name. I presume that this press is in India.
