Here is a copy of the 1952 printing of a book of which I also have an apparent first printing from 1947. As I wrote there, the book presents DS, LM, MM, GA, The Bundle of Sticks, TH, and SW. All have standard 40's illustrations, from which the colored illustration of the grasshopper (111) stands out. Compare the later edition of 1968, which has the same fables but new illustrations. Here one can find the year of the printing on the ninth page counting from the front of the book. That is a long time to get to a title-page!
