= Huiskamp S 361; cat. The Children's World of Learning 3190 (also without additions): "The teacher's text book and model plate only of a rare fable game for children, inspired by a German idea by A. Sturm (1788-1827). All separate figures from a number of fables would be given to the children, thrown together in one heap, and the children then should sort them out and try to collect all the figures belonging to one specific fable and arrange them in their right positions within the correct landscape. This game was intended for use at schools, with the booklet intended for the teacher to read the text of the fable out aloud and to check the children's results by means of the model plate. So the children's loose figures and landscapes will mostly be found separate without the book or model plate, and the book and plate will be mostly found without figures or boards, like here. Still, the text book and model plate are rare and of interest by themselves. (...) not elsewhere found recorded." Very rare.
