Sir Roger L'Estrange

L'Estrange originally published his version of the fables under the title Fables of Aesop and Other Eminent Mythologists in 1692. There is a very nice illustrated edition in the Children's Classics series by Knopf: Sir Roger L'Estrange. Aesop - Fables which is available at, although it does not cover the fables which L'Estrange included from Abstemius and other Renaissance sources, those "other eminent mythologists" of the book's title. You can find the entire book online at GoogleBooks for free!
