A very lovely set of eight substantial and richly colored slides. The numbered scenes included are: 1. The Lion and the Mouse (title slide: "Aesop's Fables from Father Tuck's Story Books"), 2. "The Dove and the Crow," 3. The Wolf and the Lamb, 4. The Dog in the Manger, 5. "The Fighting Cocks and the Eagle," 6. The Tortoise and the Hare, 7. "The Hares and the Frogs," and 8. "The Quack Frog." I first saw a set of these in a German museum a year ago and wrote asking if any might be for sale. In the meantime, these were offered in London and were even set aside for me without my knowing it! I am already thinking about how best to display these beautiful pictures....
