dc.description.abstractHere is a curious observation. This book is printed by Ballantyne, Hanson, and Company in Edinburgh and London. Might the author here be a member of the family of the printer? As the opening T of C shows, there is a fable per page from 9 through 167. The only illustrations are small printer's devices on the title-page and the last page of the T of C. Each text seems to contain twelve lines (three rhyming quatrains) of narrative and a rhyming quatrain of moral. Both the front endpaper and a back insert note that the book was a gift on Easter Monday of 1909. The book existed for thirty years, apparently, before someone claimed it! Not in Bodemann. I tried the first few fables and found them rather standard.en_US
