MetadataShow full item record
Here is a twenty-four page booklet with cardboard covers. The colored front cover features DS. There are four full pages of colored illustrations inside: WC, WL and TB, FG, and The Monkey and the Cheese, in which the monkey judge is distinguished by his red judicial robe and spectacles. I think that I have seen these colored illustrations before. Twenty fables are presented, one to a page. The moral is usually listed right under the title, usually in the Or formula. Thus the title The Stag and his Horns is followed immediately by Or, Appearances are not Everything. There is usually also one rather primitive black-and-white illustration with each fable. The black-and-white design on the title-page is exceptional. It reproduces very carefully the colored illustration of the monkey judge late in the book. Here is a British book that I would not have known of were it not for eBay and an Australian seller. The book is inscribed in 1919.
