Mister Fox (1870)

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.
