City Mouse and Country Mouse
(Quarto PublishingSt. Martin's Press, 1996)
First published in the USA by St. Martin's Press. This book comes with a kit for making the two mice. It can be viewed at http://aesop.creighton.edu/jcupub/soft_sculptures.htm. The soft-sculpture mice appear several ...
Aesop's Fables: A New Version from Original Sources
(Lilliput Press, 1995)
Here is the smallest and perhaps the finest of the miniature books in this collection. It has a hand-colored frontispiece and a lovely colored dust-jacket. I count about twenty-five fables here, each with an illustration. ...
The Little Esop
(G.W. Cottrell, 1860?)

Bewick's Select Fables of Aesop and Others
(1784: T. Saint/1878: Longmans, Green, 1776)

Les Fables d'Ésope
(Chez Genets jeune, 1805)
As Bodemann points out, this edition adds a life of Aesop to earlier editions, though those seem to have included more fables and illustrations. This is a landscape-formatted smaller (6½" x 4½") book. I have seen this ...
