dc.description.abstractHere is a wonderful little gift! I had not heard of the book before. It has 96 small (2¼ x 3) pages. The tone of the fables is decidedly virtuous, as one might expect. Besides Aesop, the acknowledged sources for this mixture of prose and verse fables include Flowers of Fable, Peter Parley, Pope and Cowper. Several of the fables here are new to me: The Court of Death, The Humming-Bird and the Butterfly, The Fly in St. Paul's Cupola, The Dog and the Crane, and The Retired Cat (who got closed up in a dresser drawer). Gold embossed title on green cloth covers. This is a fragile little gem in itself!en_US
