Abstract
Here is a 2011 print-upon-demand reprint of 1906 book. 80 pages. The copy from which the print was made had previously been owned by the New York Public Library. Apparently the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth century was a great time for conceiving of books in rhyme, a tendency in English that goes back to Jefferys Taylor in 1821. The verse here is sometimes forced. The rhyming morals are generally abundantly clear. I wonder if this might be a helpful book to use to tell a fable that people have not previously known. The rhythm and rhyme do help to carry the story forward, even if there are occasional filler-words or filler-phrases. There is an illustration on every second to fourth page. I find it unusual that the copyrighted publisher is, at least apparently, the wife of the writer, Mrs. M.L.G. Thummel. Is the A.L. quoted before the first fable Abraham Lincoln?
