Abstract
Here is the fourth of ten 16-page boxed pamphlets, 7¼" x 9⅜". There are ten stories, each with an explicit moral highlighted apart from the story. The first story presents a servant who influences a king against an enemy, is then appeased by his enemy, and reverses his advice. Familiar stories here seem to be more Aesop's than Panchatantra's: WC, FS, TH, and AD. The final stories are new to me. "The Swan and the Owl" has the latter making noise that ends up getting the former shot. "The Wise Gander" has two phases. First the geese do not heed the gander's warning about vines someday allowing a hunter to climb the tree. The second phase has the trapped birds playing dead and escaping after the unwary hunter throws them down from the tree. In "The Lion and the Ram," the former fears the latter without reason but finally attacks and overcomes him. The illustrations are in the style of Disney.
