dc.description.abstractI had had this book on my want list for some time. I suspect the 1910 date indicates little more than a copyright renewal by Scudder's heir, Grace Owen Scudder. Sixty-five fables. A comparison with Scudder's two Riverside pamphlets of the same year would be interesting. They contain thirty-five and twenty-nine fables, respectively. He says there that he draws upon these and adds others in publishing those. Might the others be just a few? Good illustrations from Herrick. T of C pages (9-11) are damaged; 19-20 are mostly torn out. This booklet includes The Arab and His Camel (67), the story about the nose in the tent; I had remarked on seeing that in a Classic Comic that I had never elsewhere seen that story as a fable. Well, now I have! AI at the back.en_US
