There is no copyright on this old book. It was published by M.A. Donohue and Company of Chicago and New York. I think it is late 1800 or early 1900. The book is intact, pages are yellow with age. The cover is much more attractive than the photo shows. The light above my computer fades out the color which is a grayish green with light gray, black and green imagees of stork and wolf. It is "appropriately llustrated" with lithographs. There are nearly 100 pages(or more) in this book. I counted 34 fables plus songs, poems and short stories. If I were teaching or had a small child I'd love to read this aloud. I was surprised to see poetry, songs and stories in addition to the fables.One poem is signed Willie's Mamma (Bradford, N.H.Another is signed Aunt Clara of North Andover, Mass. This little book is a mystery. The stories are signed by various aunts, uncles, etc., which makes me wonder if it was a family production. A wonderful little book from some East Coast family perhaps?
