MetadataShow full item record
There are fifteen fables listed in this first of six volumes in the 1920 series of The Book House. This copy was printed in 1925. This 448-page volume is generous and well used. An AI at the beginning works with titles of the stories and poems contained in this volume. Among the fables here are BC (100); FS (120); The Donkey and the Lap-Dog (126); The Two Crabs (129); SW (135); CP (146); MM (162); LM (164); DM (173); BF (176); OF (194); TT (238); DLS (261); TH (315); and BW (388). For favorite illustrations, I would pick the smiling donkey on his master's lap (127), OF (194), and DLS (262). The illustration style is charming and probably nostalgic for many of us. A number of the fable illustrations are signed Bert R. Elliott or Bertram Elliott. OF's illustration is signed Donn P. Crane '84 (194). SW (135) is told in the poorer version. I wish I had a dollar for every person who has emailed me asking where to obtain a particular cherished volume from this series!
