First published in 1890 the fascinating collection of 117 fables from The Wolf And The Lamb to The Archer And The Lion. Each story is quite short - ready for bedtime reading. And many of the stories are illustrated with fine line drawings. Each fable, of course, ends with its own moral. One of our favorites: Necessity is the mother of invention. This lovely 128-page hardback volume is truly a keepsake. It measures 19.0 x 13.5 cm, with 51 illustrations. You'll want one for yourself as well as for any child you know!
