dc.description.abstractThere is one fable listed in this third of six volumes in the 1920 series of The Book House. This copy was printed in 1928, with an earlier copyright in 1920. The fable in this volume is The Acorn and the Pumpkin by La Fontaine on 290, with illustrations by Milo Winter. To judge from the first lines, the translation is more or less stolen from Elizur Wright's 1841edition, without some sort of acknowledgement. Times change! Winter's illustrations are always fun! In this volume one also encounters How Brer Rabbit Met Brer Tar-Baby (237). As we move into more advanced volumes, the stories get longer and the T of C gets shorter. It is curious that this set of books is inscribed by Joan Helene Aleck of Omaha, NE, in 1936. Somehow they ended up in the possession of Clare Leeper in Baton Rouge, and then came back to Omaha. The first three volumes in the series all have exactly 448 pages.en_US
