There is an index of all Aesop's fables, called Perry Index, that was organized by Ben Edwin Perry in the 20th century.

But some stories are nowhere to be found, like "579 - The Sword and the Passer-by" and "621 - Peacock stripped of Feathers", and many others, at least in English.

Is there a place, book or collection where I can find all 725 Aesop's fables?

    What reason do you have to believe it's complete? I note that fables tend to become Aesop's for little or no reason, and indeed, there's some reason to believe he never existed.

    I think the question is asking for English translations of all those fables included in Perry's list and Perry's collection Aesopica, although it could stand to be a bit clearer especially with a bounty offered. Whether Aesop existed or wrote them is irrelevant to the question, just as you can ask for a translation of the Pentateuch without worrying if Moses wrote it.
