dc.description.abstractThe book is datable between the last historical event (Indian Frontier War in 1897) and the death of Victoria (still alive here) in 1901. Compare this edition to the earlier K. Greenaway 1885 edition of Mavors. The most expansive spelling-book I have seen. Pages 92-97 present six fables All six have illustrations, apparently principally J. Greenaway's engravings after Weir. Only DS repeats from 1885, and the text is different. The others are FG, BW, DM, The Kid and the Wolf, and WL. The book moves on from here to a wealth of information from currency exchange rates to Latin phrases used in English! The junk shop in which I bought this book is an adventure in itself.en_US
