This little book, marked as the third edition, is almost identical with my 1867/74 Murray edition. This copy lists a first edition in 1874 and a second in 1898. See my comments under 1867/74. I will note the differences here. The work is done by a different printer (148). One or more early pages are missing before the engraving representing Aesop, listeners, animals, and a title chiselled in stone. The following title-page is newly typeset but identical except for the lacking indication of the quantity already printed. The list of illustrations has the same information but is newly typeset and placed now after the introduction. In fact, the typesetting is new throughout. The fable number now comes after the fable's title. Some illustrations are darker (32) and/or more distinct (33) than in the 1867/74 edition, but the plates certainly seem identical. There are in fact 103 illustrations. This edition is identified in the back advertisements as part of the Murray's Shilling Library. Before those advertisements, there is again an index of titles.
