111 pages , illustrated with 7 b/w plates and many b/w line drawings by W Heath Robinson. These old Indian stories for children are skilfull adaptations from the great collection called ‘The Jataka’, or Stories of the Buddha’s former births, a Pali classic that was, in part translated by WHD Rouse. An added stroke of genius is provided by W Heath Robinson’s decoration of the 28 stories; 7 plates and many drawings in the text display the artist’s unique inventive humour.” Book seller’s label on fpd
