This is a curious and delightful find. It is a landscape book about 8½ x 5½ with about half of its spiral binding intact. Another piece of the binding fell away as I was working with this book. I cannot find an indication of where this Reading Disability Clinic existed. Left-hand pages offer texts and right-hand pages line illustrations, at least some done after Gheeraerts. The ink for both texts and illustrations is brown throughout. The best illustration may well be for The Ass and the Lapdog. Another strong illustration seems to present Aesop on the cover as a monk. The texts use Croxall as their basis. The heavy, rough-cut paper used for the internal pages features diverse colors. The booklet presents twenty-seven fables, and there is no T of C. The cover has only Aesop's without the added word Fables. This collection is made to save and to gather crazy limited-volume printings like this one!
