The Ass in the Lion's Skin, illustrated page from 'Baby's Own Aesop'
A man in a hat and tunic is pulling a donkey's ear, a stick raised above his head in the other. The donkey, dressed in a lion's skin, bucks in protest, while in the background a flurry of figures react to the scene. A row of columns (with figures hiding behind them) screens the backdrop. The rhyme reads:
"The Ass in the Lion's Skin

What pranks I shall play!" thought the Ass,
"In this skin for a Lion to pass;"
But he left one ear out,
And a hiding, no doubt,
"Lion" had - on the skin of an Ass!

Imposters generally forget something."
1900
