The Knickerbocker Press has added another to its bright collection of "Nuggets" -this time the old, familiar, AEsop's Fables, translated by Rev. Thomas James, M. A., and illustrated by John Tenniel. Old though these fables be, they are now more attractive than ever in this new edition, with its rough edges and dainty covers. Indeed a more charming little volume could hardly be added to one's library, for the translation is in a happy vein, and the pictures are as quaint and old fashioned as the fables they illustrate. It is just the book to take up after an evening of study, before going to bed; for the fables are short and pointed, and while they amuse, they at the same time instruct without tiring the reader.
