The Dog in the Manger; The Frog and the Bull. Illustrated page from 'Baby's Own Aesop'
The two rhymes are framed by horizontal panels. In the top panel, a cow reaches for a mouthful of hay while a dog, sitting on the hay, snarls back. In the lower panel, a large bull's head and forefeet are cropped into the picture. A frog puffs out its stomach as another frog looks on.
The rhymes are as follows:

"The Dog in the Manger

A cow sought a mouthful of hay;
But a dog in the manger there lay,
And he snapped out "how now?"
When, most mildly, the cow
Adventured a morsel to pray.

Don't be selfish.

The Frog and the Bull

Said the frog, quite puffed up to the eyes,
"Was this bull about me as to size?"
"Rather bigger, frog-brother."
"Puff, puff," said the other,
"A frog is a bull if he tries!"

Brag is not always belief."
