In 1966 Schocken published both hardbound and paperback editions of the Aesop by Jacobs and Heighway. It keeps as its cover illustration the picture from the hardbound dust-jacket: the dog loses his piece of meat into the water. As I mentioned a propos of the hardbound copy, this may be the best single simple edition of Aesop that I know. This paperback copy presents the engravings quite crisply. Copy A seems to be a first printing, which sold for $1.75, as the cover proclaims. My copy cost $2.95 at Downtown Books, Milwaukee, in November of 1992. Copy B, a fourth printing, sold for $2.45. My copy cost $3.95 at an unknown source in July of 1981.
