Aesop's Fables No. 1
This is a curious little landscape pamphlet with paper wraps and twelve very thin interior pages. On both covers a dapper cigar-smoking mouse faces a country hick mouse with a shepherd's crook. After the inside front cover introduces us to Aesop's fables (with no apostrophe in the first of these two words), we find LM, DS, OF, DLS, TMCM, FC, and GGE. These texts may set records for brevity! Perhaps only in DLS and TMCM do we get enough room for the illustrations to be recognized as Rountree's. Might this pamphlet have been a promotional premium, found inside a breakfast cereal? Of course, the collector in me wonders what else is in the series if this is Number 1.
