This book is larger than the 1954/64 edition I know in this country. The print itself has grown, and thus this printing is easier to read than earlier printings. This may be a printing restricted from distribution in the U.S. The text seems unchanged from the 1964 printing. The cover illustration here of an Ionian cup in the Louvre reverses the photograph from 1964: the runner is going in the opposite direction. Mention of E.V. Rieu (or any general editor) on the very first page has disappeared completely. Even Swindon's bag mentions Aesop! Of course, it mentions several hundred other people too.
