T of C at the front and an AI at the rear. About twenty great wood engravings, starting from the reading donkey on the front cover of the first printing! The engravings are particularly distinct and lively in the first ...
Fables of Aesop
(Penguin Books, 1954)
The text seems otherwise unchanged from the 1954 first printing. There is a new cover. Note that the reference to Rieu on the very first page has changed. This newer book was cheaper than the older one!
(Scholastic Book Services, 1963)
A cheap paperback. The two-color illustrations are good simple starters for several tales. Otherwise there is nothing special here. Because they are three distinct printings, I will keep all three in the collection.

(Metropolitan Museum of Art: NY Graphic SocietyMetropolitan Museum of Art; distributed by New York Graphic Society Greenwich, Conn.,, 1964)
A lovely book that started me off on this whole romp. One can always find more in this good work. Of course it also suggests many more places to look. A wonderfully chosen panorama.

Best Loved Fables of Aesop
(Grolier Society, 1967)
Identical with the Crown/Avenel hardbound book (1967?). I have copies with both a blue-on-white front cover and -- in summer of 1989 for $3 -- a white-on-blue front cover.
