Here are all the old familiar fables from The Hare and the Tortoise to The Fox and the Crow and many others that are not as well known.  This is The Heritage Illustrated Bookshelf edition.  It is a smaller format than the original Heritage Press edition printed on light weight, uncoated paper (which is subject to considerable foxing) and lacks the colophon.  The design of the box is the same as the dust jacket. 

There is also a Heritage Reprints edition, slightly smaller in size on even thinner but coated paper.  Between the two the Reprints edition shows the illustrations to better advantage.
