Fables of Aesop and Others Translated into English with Instructive Applications and One Hundred and Ninety-Eight Illustrations
(Derby & Jackson, 1859)
Here is one of many cheap reprintings with new illustrations of the Croxall edition of 1722. Perhaps the first thing to notice about this edition is that the dedication to Lord Halifax has been dropped. The preface's ...
Select Fables of Esop and Other Fabulists. In Three Books. A New Edition
(Printed for J. Dodsley, 1773)
Compare this book with my 1761 first edition, done by Stockdale in Birmingham. See my comments there. This copy lacks the frontispiece and has experienced some repairs. It is rebound in vellum covered boards, slightly ...
Aesop's Fables. 2 in 1 Tales. The Lion and the Mouse/The Wind and the Sun.
(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 ...
The Fables of Aesop with Instructive Applications Illustrated with One Hundred Engravings
(Printed and published by William Milner, 1843)
This book represents a nice version in better condition of the book I have listed under 1870? from Milner and Sowerby. Their place of business is now Halifax, whereas then it is London. The same size as that volume (3¾ ...
The Fables of Aesop and Others Translated Into English With Instructive Applications
(William P. Nimmo, 1870?)

El Leon y el Raton
(Troll Associates, 1981)
See my comments on the English version. I feared after bidding on this booklet that I was purchasing something I already had. Surprise! I was right, but it was in a different language.
Texas Aesop Fables
(Pelican Publishing Company, 2008)
This landscape-formatted book cleverly adapts Aesopic fables. It has 28 unpaginated pages with a fable or two on each page. Each fable has a colored illustration. The Texas part of the book lies in local placement, ...
H Kota me ta Xrysa Auga (The Goose and the Golden Eggs)
(Rekos EPE: Susaeta Ediciones SA, 1999)
This booklet is one of twelve published by Rekos in Greek, apparently upon the designs done by Susaeta for a European-language edition. Its sixteen pages display excellent and lively colored illustrations. Notice how ...
An Aesop's Fable: The Man and the Lion
(The Good Book Press, 1981)
Here is another lovely mini-book from the Good Book Press of Peter and Donna Thomas. I already have their The Old Man and Death from 1986. The present volume came along with The Miser from 1982. There are two linoleum ...
