This book replicates another, listed under 1900, except for the cover. Whereas that book has a colored version of Doré's The Hares and the Frogs, this version has a multicolored cloth presentation of BF. I will repeat comments from that description. This book is a triumph of pirating! The very first story, WL, comes straight from Godolphin. Note that Altemus has used the same text in The Fables of Aesop (1899), both in and outside the Altemus' Young People's Library series. Inside there is plenty of Billinghurst and Weir, with some Heighway. I have just checked ten illustrations of which I was unsure; nine are from Weir, and the tenth seems to be in his style (SW, 103). Of course no one is acknowledged. Poor condition.
