"Here is a first! This is indeed a journal for writing one's thoughts and experiences. The tiny lines in the journal are Aesop's fables. As an advertising slip proclaims, "The journal lines are the novel (in teeny, tiny ...
Les Fables d'Ésope illustrées
(Librairie Croville, 1935)
The subtitle reads: Nouvelle initiation au Grec par l'Image, l'Analyse et les Tableaux synoptiques. It is just over 10½ x 8½ and has 72 pages and twelve tableaux. The 72 pages present nineteen fables. The book offers a ...
Buch und Leben des hochberühmten Fabeldichters Aesopi
Here is a simpler version of a book I have already listed with the same bibliographical information. Here there are no cloth covers or dust jacket but rather simple boards. The Ulm Esopus picture adorns the front-cover ...
Esopo: Fábulas Escogidas
(Gráficas Aymamí?s.n., 1956)
This little paperbound book of 105 pages contains thirty-three verse fables, many of them illustrated by Noguera. I found these illustrations, most of which seem frankly derivative: on 25 a frontispiece a la Grandville ...

The Fables of Aesop [Cover: Warne's Edition of Aesop's Fables]

The Herford Aesop: Fifty Fables in Verse.
(Boston: LeRoy Phillips, Publisher/Boston: Ginn and Co: Athenaeum Press, 1921)
The verse seems good. Several of the illustrations catch hold of the reader: the exploding frog (19), the lion having eaten a man (21), and the crane with a bill in his bill (81).
A Hundred Fables of Aesop
(Dodd Mead and Company,London: John Lane the Bodley Head/NY: Dodd, Mead, 1898)
A beautiful book, though the illustrations do not come out with first-rate clarity. L'Estrange's versions are often succinct.
Aesop's Fables in Rhyme for Little Philosophers.
(John Martin's Book House, 1924)
I enjoy the illustration style here, and the fables are versified, with one or two (e.g. MM) even song-ified. Perhaps the best for use in a show would be LM. Interspersed poems often reinforce the morals of the fables. ...
