The Fables of Aesop
(Three Sirens Press, 1857)
Now this is interesting. Somewhere in the summer of 1986 I found this book. Its corpus is identical with those of other Bennett editions but this book is one-fifth of them in size. The black-and-white illustrations are ...
Bennett's Fables from Aesop and Others
(Viking Press, 1857)
I already have several copies of this book, but this copy has a difference. The copy came in an eBay sale of several good recent illustrated fable books at a good price. The difference in this copy comes on its dust ...
The Fables of Aesop

Book of Fables Illustrated by Facts from Real Life
(T. Nelson and Sons, 1853)
Here is a curious book. It uses exactly the same texts for the same fables in another book by the same author, "Gems from Fable-Land: A Collection of Fables Illustrated by Facts," published in New York in the same year ...
