This is a very good rare hardcover. 1903 Brethren Publishing House. This copy is very good inside and out. The pages are clean and free of markings. Light natural tanning to pages from age but no foxing seen. Binding tight and straight. Blue hardcover illustrated and tooled hardcover boards are very good. There is wearing at corners and edges but overall very good.

Rev. W.S. Harris wrote many books, most referencing social issues, morality and idealism. Other works include Sermons by The Devil, Life in a Thousand Words, and Capital and Labor. The preface by the author in this title states; " Fables and parables have been used for many centuries to present truth in a novel and condensed form". It goes on to say that the author endeavored to observe several mottoes among which are maintaining purity in word and thought, present truth in a simple striking manner so to be easily understood, and to impart moral and spiritual instruction to all those who scan this volume.
