Here is an extra copy of this book. This book is the same page-size as the most recent Penguin (1954/64/91). From that edition this one drops the frontispiece, the introduction (all six parts), the note on critical editions, the title/illustration page just before the fables, and the notes on individual fables at the back. The result is that an individual fable here will be on a page lower by 2 than the page there. The book has been newly typeset. The typo in #96 remains. The back cover speaks accurately of The Essential Collection. There is now a colorful cover-painting featuring some of the animal stars of fables. See my comments on the translation and basic layout under 1954.
