dc.description.abstractStrange things happen when one delves into publishing history. This is a pamphlet of at least 62 pages, followed by four pages of advertisements. I could not find a match with any of the Books for Bairns volumes of Aesop's Fables, which were published first in the 1890's by Review of Reviews and then again in 1926 by Ernest Benn. This pamphlet seems nearly identical rather with a volume published in the US by the Palmer Company in 1911. There seem to be only two differences: the US copy makes reference to New York in TMCM (21), whereas there are no local references here. Secondly, this copy does not have a T of C at the front, though the pages before the title-page are currently lacking. Like that volume and the Books for Bairns, this book follows a format of dividing every printed page between text in one vertical column and a series of two to four small illustrations in the other column. As I mention about the Palmer copy, there is definitely a charm in the series of small pictures presented here. An excellent example is CW on 39. Successive scenes show the man attending to the cat, looking down in front of a woman, marrying her, and then watching her crawl after a mouse. The woodsman actually kicks the amorous lion in the buttocks after he has been declawed (44). FM (52) and GGE (60) offer other excellent synoptic series of illustrations. This coverless pamphlet is well worn; the advertising pages are severed from the binding.en_US
