(View Productions, Pty Ltd., 1985)

A second book of Aesop's Fables
A small version--with twelve fables--of the later Ladybird large-format book Aesop's Fables (1975). It looks like the illustrations are the same. The Wolves and the Dogs is here but not in the larger-format book.

(Thomas Nelson and Sons, 1894)
The first of the two books combined here I have already had. It is a lovely little book of 117 fables with a mix of illustrators and illustration styles. As I write there, I think I can detect four different styles and, ...
Aesop's Fables [Korean Bilingual]
