Here is a Dover (2009) unabridged republication of the edition published by William Heinemann, London, and Doubleday, Page, and Co., New York, in 1912, as the verso of the title-page says. Surprisingly, the back cover has the same sentence but a date of 1917. This is a book I would consider using in a future fable course. It is compact -- so compact, in fact, that it is heavy -- and has lovely renditions of Rackham's colored illustrations. The back cover claims that there are thirteen full-color and fifty-three black-and-white illustrations. My hat is off to Dover for producing this lovely book!
