dc.description.abstractThe introduction to this twelve-page booklet offers the touching story of a very poor family in the 1920's, when mother Helen and son Rex collaborated on a book of two fables. Here, sixty years later, the booklet sees the light of day through the services of their respective son and brother Laurence. The Satyr and the Traveller and The Two Springs are offered, each with a very strong black-and-white full-page illustration. The illustration for the former is especially strong, I think. The facial expression of the satyr is that of one perplexed. The texts are made up of rhyming couplets. The latter fable is unknown to me in this form. It is about the slow, quiet river triumphing over the fast and splashy one. The illustration has both rivers spewing from a mountain cave, which is the mouth of a human face. The printing was done in Marlborough for the text and in Charlbury for the drawings. This is a rare find!en_US
