Fifteen Aesopic fables are mixed in here with various folktales. There is a good black-and-white-and-green illustration of a broken bridge and the fallen donkey (53); other illustrations are of LM (61) and WC (64). Also included in the fifteen is what is identified as an old Hebrew fable: The Wise Bird and the Hunter, with an illustration (72). There is a T of C at the front. I suspect that this book's fable materials are virtually identical with those in Hart's publication of a year later, A Treasury of the World's Great Myths and Legends for Boys and Girls. This edition may add color that is lacking there.
