The fun of this little (4¼ x 6¼) book starts with a red cloth cover imprinted with yellow, red, and green; it shows a girl punting a rowboat. The frontispiece is a strong etching of a ewe reflected in a pool. On the title page is a simpler design of children dancing. The only other illustration is an initial in the first story. The T of C shows that there are thirty-eight fables here. The spine is split between 32 and 33. Even before I checked a sample fable, I judged that these were Croxall's texts and applications. The book is inscribed by J.D. Williamson on Sept. 11, (18)93.
