Abstract
This is a curious book, apparently in the category of mass produced classics made to look old and fancy. The versions of its 150 fables seem sometimes long. The illustrator is mentioned only on the cover and dust jacket, not within the book itself. There are ten simple full-page colored illustrations (listed just after the beginning T of C). Some are printed on front and back of their inserted pages. One repeats the cover and another the frontispiece. The best of the illustrations may be the frontispiece, The Donkey's Shadow, with its cool, classic lines. On the repeat of this illustration (112) the paper-cutter missed by a little, and one can still see the printer's markings at the top of the page.
