Abstract
I have loved this book from the beginning because of its dramatic, simple cover-illustration of a wolf with glasses reading a book. Inside are twelve strong chromolithographs, one for each story in the unpaginated book. There is a four-page pattern for each story: title-page with a black-and-white illustration, a page of text, the full-page chromolithograph, and a final page of text. The illustrations here are not as stylized as I find Billinghurst in his better known works. The color work here is very pleasing. Do not miss the dramatic red-and-black mouse on the title-page! The fox in FG was a wise fox, and knew that it is better not to long for things which we cannot have. Green cloth spined pictorial boards. See my identical edition from Henry Frowde and Hodder and Stoughton in London under the same year.
