MetadataShow full item record
Both the cover and the identical first illustration in this fragile little eight-page pamphlet have been colored, though with different color schemes. An older man holds a book and perhaps reads from it while two children stand and listen. The fables included are FS, WL, WC, and DW. Each gets an exquisite little illustration colored presumably by hand. If an amateur did the coloring, she or he did it very well! The green paper cover is not thick. The book measures slightly more than 2 x 3. This book has done well to last this long! It is an exquisite little treasure.
