Abstract
Change the title and format of one book, and you make a brand-new other book like this one. The same publisher, author, and illustrator collaborated on Aesop's Fables for Little Readers, for which I guessed at a date of 1880. I may need to revise that guess now. Here Readers is changed to People. That book is 6¾ x 8½. Here we move to a smaller book, 4¼ x 6½. The illustrations are unfortunately scaled down and changed from sepia to black-and-white. Some illustrations that were nicely configured onto the page of print have now been removed to a separate page, like TB (107). My favorite illustration is still the second illustration for The Hermit and the Bear, which shows a hermit with a terribly bent nose, which the bear broke according to this version (58). See my comments on the original edition (also listed under 1880?).
