Smith. Annancy Stories.

Today's free book is Annancy Stories by Pamela Colman Smith, with illustrations by the author. This collection of stories about the Jamaican trickster Anansi (ultimately of West African origin) was published in 1899, which makes it roughly contemporary to Joel Chandler Harris's Brer Rabbit publications,

I have found this book at Internet Archive, Google Books, and Hathi Trust.
