A Novel Journal: Aesop's Fables
(Peter Norton: Printers Row Publishing Group, 2016)
"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 ...
This fifth edition is identical with the fourth except for changes in the price and in the color and setup of the front and back covers.
L'Esopo Moderno: Quattrocentotrenta Favole
(Vallecchi Editore, 1940)
The 430 fables are numbered in the T of C at the back. Pancrazi writes a Poscritto 1940 after his original Invito all'Esopo dated in 1930. The only thing I can find on Pancrazi so far is his life span, 1893-1953. The ...
Muthon Aisopeion Ekloge (Greek): Choix de Fables d'Ésope: Texte Grec suivi d'un lexique
(Maison Alfred Mame et Fils, 1900)
The first surprise in this little book of 84 pages is the Jesuit seal on the title-page. Where does that come from? A two-page notice on Aesop precedes some forty-one Greek fables on 26 pages. A Greek-French dictionary ...
(Dial Books for Young Readers: Penguin Young Readers Group, 2003)

(Dr. Ernst Hauswedell & Co. Verlag, 1949)
This is a valuable little book. It had better be at the prices I paid for both copies! First, it presents a rare vernacular version of Romulus. There are eighty-six fables here on 92 pages, including an untitled last ...
Die Diebe und der Hahn: Fabeln des Äsop und Äsopische Fabeln des Phädrus
(Buchverlag der Morgen, 1966)
I like this book. It takes up Hegenbarth's work from its 1949 presentation (Äsop: Fabeln) and gives it a livelier and larger format. The format is generous; there is never more than one fable on a page, and there are ...
(Dover Publications, 2009)
Here is a Dover (2009) unabridged republication of the edition published by William Heinemann, London, and Doubleday, Page, and Co., New York, in 1912, as the verso of the title-page says. Surprisingly, the back cover has ...
El cigarra y la hormiga: Versión de la fábula de Esopo
(Picture Window Books, 2006)
This book is 6 x 8½ and has 24 pages. The illustrations were painted with watercolor. The story is well told. Text and illustrations make for a lively telling of the fable. There is no ultimate resolution here. The ...
