This book is apparently a reprint with new cover of the original edition done in 1974. There is no indication in either book that it is a later printing. The bibliographer is thus left to guess at the date of publication for this book. Let me repeat part of what I wrote there: The seventh of eight sections of this book is given to reproducing—with some omissions—Anne Sellers Leaf's Aesop's Fables from Rand McNally in 1952. The omissions include 'The Cat, the Cock, and the Young Mouse,' GGE, and WS. The larger page format here allows illustrations and story to be spread out further. The editor cleverly cuts the boy going to shout 'Wolf!' in half; the reader has to turn the page to see the other half. With this volume I have included one other sent by the seller, Stories About Animals, which contains no fables.
