Still More Aesop's Fables
(Ideals Publishing Co., 1966)
This is a small-format book, almost a pamphlet. Surprise! I had thought that the companion volumes in 1965 and 1966 were the whole set. Perhaps the most entertaining illustration here features a gigantic ant biting the ...
Bewick's Select Fables
(Hillside Press, 1965)
Notable as one of the smallest Aesops I have found: about an inch square. The introduction (by F.E.I. ) points out that Bewick's originals were only two inches high. Eleven fables, each with an illustration, plus FC ...

(Grosset & Dunlap, 1963)
Alphabetical list at the book's front. Very few drawings, and they are not superior. Perhaps helpful for its clear applications. I think one can show a chronological progression among the three copies by watching ...
