Here is a print upon demand black-and-white reprint of Larned and Rae's book originally published by Volland in 1918. Like the original, it has eighteen fables, each done with four excellent, witty pictures. The illustrations follow a pattern: opener, comment, full-page display, and epigram. Here the full-page illustrations are reduced to the size of the other illustrations. All of these are so delightful in color in the original that it is a rather negative experience to see them here in black-and-white. See my comments on the original from 1918 and later printings from 1924 and 1950. Since the book has changed its character, I list it simply as a new publication under 2010.
