The Fables of Aesop with a Life of the Author.
(John W. Lovell Co., 1865)
One illustration per story, noble rather than imaginative. The applications are often longer than the fables!
(McLoughlin Bros., 1903?)
A big old kids' book in terrible shape, but it has one fable in it: FG in poetry. The illustration has three foxes jumping for the grapes.

XX Fables pour Grandes et Petites Personnes
(Maison Eugène Figuière & Cie, 1914)
This is a frail little book by a woman who died in 1974. Its spine is just about gone. Its lovely canvas cover is there, with the glued-on picture of a woman -- d'Orliac? -- with her chin in her hand. The same illustration ...
Classika Eikonographemena: Aisopos
(Atlantis - M. Fechlivanides and Co., 2000?)
This 48-page comic book, consistent with our Classics Illustrated, presents the life of Aesop. To my surprise, it starts with Aesop as an older man. I can make out very few of the more commonly supposed events of tradition ...
Fables in Verse
(Boston: Crosby and Nichols/NY: Oliver S. Felt, 1864)
This is a small volume about 5 x 6 with 32 fables on 124 pages. Actually, the numbering of fables in the middle is confused, though no pages are skipped. The order of fables goes through this progression: XIV, XVIII, ...
