MetadataShow full item record
This is a 32-page pamphlet about 3½ x 5 with thin paper covers and a sewn ribbon binding. Unfortunately 21-28 are missing here. On both covers a young girl sits with a book spread in her lap. As it is, there are eleven large illustrations in the remaining pages, one for each fable. They are surprisingly clear, even if they sometimes present just the characters and not the necessary interaction or event. Each fable also has an application. I suppose that that fact is a tribute to Samuel Croxall. This pamphlet is in poor condition. It is coming up on 150 years of age.
