This miniature is reproduced by a doll house expert. It seems clear that this tiny version is based on McLoughlin's Aesop's Fables, probably in the Aunt Luisa series. Aunt Luisa appears on the back of this book. It contains 16 pages (not including the flyleaves) with 6 full color plates. This book is 31/32 high by 25/32 wide and ? thick. It is constructed using techniques the artist has developed for miniature books. I seem to recognize some of the illustrations more from seeing them on trade cards than from seeing them in a book somewhere. The TMCM picture near the book's center is a classic! This is surely my smallest find!
