This book represents a very lucky find. I no longer expect to find as-yet-undiscovered fable books in rural antique stores. Here I found two from the same series! The fables included here are: The Cat, the Monkey and the Chestnuts (111); The Quails (156, identified as an Eastern Fable); and The Bundle of Sticks (157). Only the first of these has an illustration. The Quails is about cooperating against a common enemy. The quails are able to fly away with a fowler's net -- as long as they work together. Once they start quarreling, their common enterprise is lost.
