L'Estrange. Aesop and Other Eminent Mythologists, 1669

Although this book is not illustrated, L'Estrange's Aesop and Other Eminent Mythologists is a delight, so I will be transcribing the fables and morals (but not the reflections) here, using the 1669 third edition as available at the Internet Archive (and there are more editions online here). Then, I will add an illustration to each fable from the illustrations already available at this site.

Here is the frontispiece to that edition:

And here are the fables I have transcribed so far:

001. A Cock and a Diamond
002. A Cat and a Cock
003. A Wolf and a Lamb
004. A Frog and a Mouse

006. A Dog and a Shadow
