Aesop's Fables Translated and with Full Notes
(Commercial Press, LimitedShang wu yin shu guan, 1921)
Here is a softbound reader with lots of explanations right after each paragraph -- and even each sentence -- of a fable. There are 126 fables on 326 pages. The whole book is deteriorating. There is a T of C at the ...
Aesop's Fables: A New Version Written by Munro Leaf with Illustrations by Robert Lawson. Collector's Edition. Bound in genuine leather.
(The Easton Press, 1941)
I finally broke down and picked up this fancy rendition of a book I have enjoyed very much. The cover is dramatic, the binding is made of buffalo, with moire endleaves and excellent paper--and I still like the art, ...
The Fables of Aesop
(Concordia Publishing House, 1906)

Three Aesop Fox Fables
(Clarion Books: Houghton Mifflin, 1971)
It is strange that I have gone all these years and never even known that there was a paperback of this lively little book. Galdone's work remains enjoyable.
Aesop's Fables (FC on cover)
(Collins' Clear-Type Press, 1922)
This is another thinner edition of The Children's Press edition of the same year, but it has more in common with it than the previous listing. The layout of the T of C is identical, as are the title-page illustration and ...
Aesop's Fables (FC on cover, no colored illustrations)

This is a derivative version--shorter and no doubt cheaper--of Rountree's works from The Children's Press (1922?) and Collins' Clear-Type Press (1922?). This book has only twenty fables, no colored illustrations, and a ...
