In 1966 Schocken published both hardbound and paperback editions of the Aesop by Jacobs and Heighway. This is the 1987 printing of the paperback. The cover has changed since the 1979 printing of the paperback. It now uses black rather than orange ink for its print and for the illustration of Heighway's WC. The price has gone up from $3.95 to $7.95. 1987 is not mentioned in the bibliographical information inside the book but it appears on the back cover. As I mentioned a propos of the 1966 hardbound copy, this may be the best single simple edition of Aesop that I know. Like the hardbound and the earlier paperback copy, this printing presents the engravings quite crisply.
