This booklet is identical with a third impression found earlier. This has no such marking, and so I presume that it is a first impression. Let me repeat some of my comments from there. This is an engaging eight-page pamphlet with stiff covers. It tells the story directly and even sparsely. Do not miss the smile on the ass's face on 5 when he has lost most of his salt. Then notice his chagrined look on 8 with the soaked sponges on his back! The version underscores the contrast nicely by exclaiming at the first point Lucky ass! and at the second Silly ass! Now I have found five of the twelve booklets in this series.
