The Children's Aesop
(Boyd Mills PressCaroline House/Boyds Mills Press, 1992)
This printing of a delightful book is almost exactly the same as a book already in the collection in the same year. The differences include these: not Caroline House but Boyds Mills Press is on the title-page; the list ...
Aesop's Fables: The Fox and the Grapes and other stories
(Dreamland Publications, 1997)
Was this bright color work done in India? This is an oversized 8½ x 11 presentation of four fables. The fox in FG is female. The expression of frustration and anger on her face on the final page of FG is well done. The ...
Aesop's Frog Fables
(Peter & Donna Thomas, 1990)
A beautifully executed book. I like the letterpress printing. The print and the versions are very attractive; I find the nine illustrations somewhat disappointing: they lack the wit or characterization one might have ...
Aesop's Fables [Korean]
I like this book, principally for its vivid color reproductions. Four stories: TMCM, GA (maybe the best art), The Bat and the Birds and the Animals (a Korean favorite), and LM (the poorest art). The back cover reverses 15.
De fabels van Aisopos
(Uitgeverij SUN, 1997)
This is a beautiful little book! How nice of Gert-Jan to inscribe it For Greg, as a souvenir of our fabulous meetings and discussions on Aesop's genre and to send it. Now I only wish I could read it! There is one fable ...
This book reproduces almost exactly a book I have in English: Collected Tales from Aesop's Fables (1986), a Gallery book from W.H. Smith Publishers. This edition skips the foreword, but its T of C, which borrows the ...
The Ant and the Grasshopper
(Houghton Mifflin Company, 1991)
This is a full-sized 16-page pamphlet. The illustrations are double-page spreads with simple lines, like The Ant worked. The grasshopper didn't (3). Pages 4-5 show delight in the multi-limbed character of both insects. ...
(Smithmark: U.S. Media Holdings, Inc., 1996)
Nine fables in a book notable perhaps chiefly for its soft thick cover. Hussey did the illustrations for a Mini Classics edition, The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse And Other Aesop's Fables (1994?), also copyrighted by ...
Aesop's Fables: The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse & The Boy Who Cried Wolf
(Modern Publishing: Unisystems, Inc., 1994)
Here is a new presentation of the same art that Hirata used in 1989 for his Joie set. The art here is certainly superior in presentation to the Peter Haddock series (1989?). It is darker than Joie's art, sometimes stronger ...
Aesop's Fables: A Collection of Tales for Children.
(Bookmart Limited, 1995)
Large-format book presenting sixteen fables in strong colors in a variety of sizes and shapes. The frontispiece of FG gives a sense of the artist's flair for color and delight in minute rendering of elements like fur. ...
