(Easton Press, 1985)
This book seems identical, except for the publisher and the binding, with the 1985 Holt original. If anything, the illustrations here are even sharper than they are there. There is a ribbon to help you remember your place.
(Holt Rinehart, and Winston,, 1985)

Aesop's Four Footed Fables
