Sir Roger L'Estrange's Fables, With Morals And Reflections, In English Verse
(Tho. HarbinThomas Harbin, 1717)
A curious little treasure. There are poetic versions of 201 of l'Estrange's 500 prose fables published in 1692, with shorter applications (they still seem long!). Stacy says that earlier verse attempts have beenflat and ...

Aesop Naturaliz'd: in a collection of fables and stories from Aesop, Locman, Pilpay, and others
(D. Midwinter and A. Ward/Ecco Print EditionsECCO Eighteenth Century Online Print Editions,, 1743)
This is a standard versified Aesop from the eighteenth century featuring some one-hundred-and-eighty fables. Because it lacks all illustration, it is not in Bodemann. The naturalized of the title refers, I believe, to ...

Bewick's Select Fables of Aesop and Others
(1784: T. Saint/1878: Longmans, Green, 1776)
Lovely, if sometimes simple, wood engravings. The best may be TT and DS. This is apparently an early work of Bewick's, not to be confused with the classic 1818 edition. Tripartite AI at the back.
