dc.description.abstractThis book is similar to a portion of Nursery Rhymes and Funny Fables published by Nelson and Sons. I have that book listed under 1930? but now I see that this book is inscribed in 1919. I may have to reconsider the date for that book. That book presents twenty-seven fables out of Dalkeith's forty-seven in her work from the early twentieth century. Here we have forty-six. Did one fable get expunged? These texts seem faithful to those in the early edition, even including the gender confusion in TH (49), where the tortoise is twice referred to as male and once as female! Each fable is given one or two pages and one simple black-and-white rectangular illustration. Perhaps the best among these is that for FG (40) with the fox holding his nose high in the air. Do some of the illustrations echo those of Arthur Rackham? The astrologer's well (48) is very shallow! I would add on this viewing that the milkmaid has a milk-pan and a little girl with her (42). I find the illustration for DW (29) curious. It puts one animal behind a half-door. The scene thus does not fit well with the narrative, in which the wolf sees how fat the dog is. The illustration might be more appropriate for the story of the wolf and the young goat in the house. This edition adds four full-page color illustrations and a colored front cover. The latter is a humorous presentation of FS. The frontispiece presents UP. The other three pages illustrate TB, DS, and TH, the last of these done in two pictures. These illustrations show up elsewhere, I believe, but I cannot find them now.en_US
