Abstract
A favorite. The miller and his son shoulder the ass. Six pages of square colored pictures; some colors miss slightly. The verse text (British?) is sometimes at odds with the (American) illustrations, as when the mice come to Lincoln's Inn, but the picture's sign points to New York! Mrs. Stork wears pants! Seven fables: LM, TMCM, The Magic Casket, The Father's Legacy, FS (best prints), The Lark and Her Young, and The Old Man and the Ass. The mice smoke at dinner, work with a knife and fork, and face all the intruders at once. Originally $.25. Lindseth dates the booklet to 1880.
