I have another copy of this little eight-page pamphlet. I have listed it under 1860?; its illustrations are colored, and it adds a green cover. Here the illustrations are not colored, and the cover paper has the same color and consistency as the internal pages; in fact it is numbered as a page. On the cover (but not repeated inside, as in the other copy), 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. There is an extra illustration of a dog on the bottom of the back page/cover. The book measures slightly more than 2 x 3. A young hand of someone named Smith has practiced the name repeatedly on 2. Like its partner, this book has done well to last this long! It is an exquisite little treasure.
