Favorite Folktales and Fables for Boys and Girls
Here is a second copy of this book. Though it is identical internally, this copy has a green cover with more information: "A Happy Hour Book" and "For boys and girls from 7 to 12." This copy lacks the pleasant endpapers in the red-covered copy. As I wrote there, this book has fifteen Aesopic fables mixed in with various folktales. There is a good black-and-white-and-green illustration of a broken bridge and the fallen donkey (53); other illustrations are of LM (61) and WC (64). Also included in the fifteen is what is identified as an old Hebrew fable: "The Wise Bird and the Hunter," with an illustration (72). There is a T of C at the front. I suspect that this book's fable materials are virtually identical with those in Hart's publication of a year later, "A Treasury of the World's Great Myths and Legends for Boys and Girls." This edition may add color that is lacking there.
