Antique Aesop's Fables

 How about another version of Aesop's Fables?  This antique copy of ours is unfortunately missing the front pages.  So I don't have a publishing date or the illustrator's name.  I'm guessing it's at least 100 years old.  Each story title is uniquely illustrated, which I absolutely love!  There are even notes in the back which give the pedigree of some of the fables, referencing Fontaine and Phaedrus and various Indian legends.
