MetadataShow full item record
Here is a copy of the fourth printing of a book I already have in the collection in its original 1949 version. Thirteen fables (415-21) in Thomas James' translations form the chief representive of the genre here. Low's woodcut-style drawings are delightful throughout, including the two for these Greek fables: DW and TB. There is also a section on Renard (304) and a generous sampling of stories of India. The latter include Mouse-Maid Made Mouse (443), The Loyal Mungoose (448), The Brahman and the Pot of Rice (450), and The Mice That Ate Iron (451).
