Originally copyrighted apparently by Blue Lion and SSR-RTSI in 1981. See my comments on Volume III. The first fable of nine here, "The Lion and the Stag," is again highly dramatic. The lion weeps over losing the hare while he has chased a stag in vain. The "II" in the title appears only on the tape itself. Now I have the first tape in the series still to find, though I cannot be sure whether there is a fourth too!
