The Fox without a Tail, illustrated page from 'Baby's Own Aesop'
A group of foxes surround a serrated trap that has caught one of their tails. In the background a multi-stemmed tree or shrub fans out within the semi-circular frame and oak-leaf motifs whorl around it. In the foreground, to the right of two little fox cubs playing on the ground, the rhyme is written across an unfurled roll of parchment. It reads:
"The Fox without a Tail

Said fox, minus tail in a trap,
"My friends! Here's a lucky mishap:
Give your tails a short lease!"
- But the foxes weren't geese,
And none followed the fashion of trap.

Yet some fashions have no better reason."
1900
