This page depicts "The Fox and the Stork." In the story, the fox makes soup for the stork but puts it in a shallow bowl that the stork cannot drink out of. In retaliation, the stork makes the fox stew but puts it in a jar with a thin neck that the fox cannot drink from.
The illustration depicts the stork and fox in a room with steaming cauldrons, books, a bellows, a turtle, bottles filled with embalmed frogs, and lizard skins attached to the wall.
