[Thai] Aesop's Fables, Vol. 2
(Polytechnic Education Ltd., 1979)
Fifteen fables. The title page here does not say Aesop's Fables in English. The story from the cover picture is not in this book! Here all the illustrations are taken from Ayton, and all the fables have English morals. ...

(1784: T. Saint/1878: Longmans, Green, 1776)
