Childcraft in Fourteen Volumes.
(Field Enterprises, 1949)
Eleven fables at the end of the book. Seven versions are holdovers from the 1931/47 Childcraft edition and thus come from Jacobs; the four that are new come from Aesop's Fables (1944), edited by Elizabeth Stones. Thus ...

The Rand McNally Book of Favorite Nursery Classics.
