      Aesop (Hillside Press. Franklin, N.H.Franklin, NH, 1965)

    • Eastern Fables 

      No Author (Hillside Press. 1973)

    • Florian's Fables 

      Florian; Grandville, J. J (The Hillside Press. Franklin, N.H.Franklin, NH, 1970)
      Nicely executed miniature. Nine fables, each with an illustration. The translator is the same as in my 1888 version. Florian's fables still strike me as preachy: there is little action and plenty of moralizing talk.
