Favole di animali: Fiabe di la Fontaine, Fedro e Esopo.
(AMZ Editrice, 1960)
Colorful and often useful pictures. I like the one of the ant giving hell to the grasshopper. Good faces too on the fox with and moving away from the grapes. Style is simple but colorful, and the cut of the pictures ...
The Father, his Son and their Donkey/Hermes and the Wood-cutter/The Rich Man and his Servant.
(Oxford University Press, 1971)

A Child's Version of Aesop's Fables
(Ginn and Co., 1894)
This seems to be an exact reprinting of the 1891 version, of which I have a copy. It seems also identical with the 1904 version, of which I also have a copy. Was the series' name in those versions "Classics for Children" ...
Fontaine's Fables, With Which Are Included Aesop's Fables.
