Fable Nook and Story Book: A Collection of Catchy Rhymes and Amusing Stories for the Little Ones Together with an Illuminated Alphabet
No Thumbnail Available
The book pulls together very diverse materials. Most frequent among them are rhymes of all sorts. Crane is illustrator for relatively little in the book, which may be of interest historically because of all the different simple designs that are included. Representatives of fables include, in monochrome, the pre-title-page of The Bundle of Sticks and The Blind Doe and later LM and The Miser & His Gold. The colored representatives are the frontispiece (FK and Horse and Man) and a page including FG and TH. In all these cases one full-design (square) and one half-design of Crane's are put together to fill out the page.
