Fabulae Aesopi published in Amsterdam, 1660

Fabulae Aesopi as published in Amsterdam in 1660, with engravings by Karel van Sichem.

There is also a 1729 edition with the same illustrations online at the Internet Archive. Most interesting of all: I found a publication by the Halford Sauce Company from 1895 which contains 27 of the woodcuts with English fables, and advertisements for Halford Sauce! You can find that book at Hathi Trust.

Here's a random image from the book:
