This book came originally from St. Cecilia Grade School in Omaha. It has two nice sections on the fables of Aesop and of India, respectively (220-225 and 226-31). Though Joseph Jacobs is on the editorial board, the translation of the fourteen Aesopic fables here is not from Jacobs. There are two excellent small illustrations of TH and FWT facing 224. The S.R.P. who did them may well be Sophie Rosamund Praeger. The nine fables of India, adapted by P.V. Ramaswami Raju, include several that are new to me. Particularly good is The Man and his Piece of Cloth (227). Though Mabie also edited Boys' and Girls' Bookshelf, Volume 2, in 1912, the two texts seem to make a strenous and successful effort not to overlap at all in their choice of fables. This book is missing xvii-10.
