This booklet is close to several others that I have, but Nelson seems to have changed the format slightly. This volume lists one specific title first and then adds And Other Fables Illustrated by Stories from Real Life where those others start with Fables Illustrated by Stories from Real Life and then add a Roman numeral (e.g. VII) and a subtitle (e.g., The Wisdom of Experience). Like them, this volume has 31 pages and then a blank, and it features seven stories, each with a modern equivalent and a Harrison Weir illustration. Where their covers are yellow and slick in appearance, this volume has a green cloth cover with gilt and two pasted-on pictures. The stories here include The Wolf and the Lion; The Monkey and the Cats; The Lion, the Bear, and the Fox; The Fox and the Stork; The Horse and the Loaded Ass; and The Miser and Plutus. In fact, this booklet is Section Two, Justice and Judgment, of Fables Illustrated by Stories from Real Life. First Series, whereas the other booklets seem to be sections of the second series.
