Mister Fox (1870) | The Public Domain Review

Mister Fox; 1870; R. Shugg & Co., New York.

A short piece of juvenile literature about the hungry Mister Fox and his attempts to acquire dinner for his family – an endeavour which proves successful despite the attempts of the farmer and his wife to intervene – all illustrated in a series of delightful silhouettes. The book is part of Series 3 of the “Mother Goose Melodies” which saw other stories for children, including Cock Robin, Cinderella, and a collection of Little Ditties (which you can see here), all cast in similar rhymes and accompanied by silhouette illustrations.
