The cover reads Uncle Frank's Fables for Children: The Swallow & Other Birds. Fifth of six volumes (listed on the back cover), with pages numbered here from 137-170. Twenty-five fables. The organizing principle seems to be the illustration on every right hand page. Small fables are filled in to complete the left-hand pages before each right hand page starts anew. The illustrations, apparently after Bewick, are fine. The selection of fables here is strongly traditional. I find only three that are new to me: The Prince and the Hermit (139), The Old Man and the Scoffer (145), and The Two Lizards (149). This exemplar is in very good condition, as are all the Miran copies.
