This 8½ x 11 book is fascinating because it is a large-print reprint of the 5 x 7¾ book Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated published by many different publishers around 1910. The one I am comparing it with right now is by the World Publishing Company in Cleveland. The only variation I have found from simply reproducing the smaller text proportionally on larger pages comes with the very last page, on which the type is lowered to the bottom of the page with more space around the illustration (of a boar and a man riding a horse). Other publishers of the identical book at about the same time included the Goldsmith Publishing Company, the World Publishing Company, and the World Syndicate Publishing Company. See my comments on all four of those editions under 1910? This book was discarded by the Owensboro-Daviess County Public Library in Owensboro, Kentucky.
