MetadataShow full item record
Among some forty stories offered in this well-used large-format book are several fables: The Wonderful Tar-Baby adapted from the original story by Joel Chandler Harris; GA (60); BC (89); and FG (147). FG has a strong illustration done in several colors. Otherwise the illustrations are standard children's fare, more typical of the fifties and earlier than of the sixties or seventies. One also finds here The Emperor's New Clothes (27), The Nightingale (38), and The Ugly Duckling (96), all by Hans Christian Andersen. There is a tear on 125. The spine, inside and out, has been heavily scotch-taped. It is rare these days that I can find at a flea market a fable book that is new to me!
