This book duplicates one I already have in the collection from Homewood Publishing Company. I will list this under the same date as that. In fact, this copy is in better condition than that one and includes the frontispiece of The Fox and the Goat. That very picture shows up on the next nearest parallel to this book, Aesop's Fables published by Conkey, which I have also listed under 1920? Like the Homewood edition, the present book features FK on its cover in three colors on cloth-covered boards. I will repeat several comments from there: This is a fascinating melange in a cheap book for kids. The seventy-five illustrations are stolen from Billinghurst. The top of the T of C page (5) is stolen from Heighway. The tellings seem mostly from the familiar JBR version. In fact, all these books follow the pattern set by The Fables of Aesop (1900?) put out by Charles E. Graham & Co.
