Fables of Aesop
(Choun Moon Wha SA, 1988)
Clearly related to Choun's bilingual Fables of Aesop (1980/88), even down to the book's size and cover art. Again, the first 203 of Handford's 207 fables are presented, with the same footnotes. An analysis of the footnote ...

A Kaleidoscope of Fairies & Fables
See the 1983 Aesop's Fables done by the same people and published by Silver Burdett. Silver Burdett had the book then from Hamlyn, who had the copyright. Here Hamlyn cleverly uses the same materials again, as they had ...
