I am delighted to have found a full set of this encyclopedia, from which I have earlier volumes dated 1911 and 1912. The encyclopedia has changed since then. The principal artist seems to be new, Dudley Heath. There is no longer any color in the illustrations, nor is there reference to the next set of fables. Note that each of the two independent volumes here contains its own T of C, for example here before 385. While individual fables are listed in the index at the end of the last volume, the T of C has only a general Fables of Aesop listing under the Book of Stories. This volume has an introduction to fable and then six fables on 539-40: FK, TH, FC, The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing, The Fox and the Well (differently told), and BC. Each fable receives one or two illustrations. There are many previous copyrights, starting in 1923, that lead up to the final 1941 copyrights.
