The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse
(EDC]Usborne Publishing, 2007)
I noticed this book as I wandered around Learning Sprout Toys in Tacoma on a morning of visiting after a fable lecture at Puget Sound University. The story starts in the present but promptly shifts to the past. Pipin is ...
(Meadowside Children's Books, 2006)
This book is big and dramatic! It will appeal to children by its helpful introductions of the characters, e.g., A story about a not very nice hare and a pretty slow tortoise. I think one could best call the art primitive. ...
Three Hundred Aesop's Fables
(George Routledge and Sons, 1885)
This lovely little book in fine condition is very close to the Townsend/Weir Three Hundred that I have put at 1885?/1895?, but there are several differences. Slightly smaller in its dimensions, this volume has a bright ...
Three Hundred Aesop's Fables
(G. Routledge and Sons Ltd.,George Routledge and Sons, 1885)
Closest to the McLoughlin (1885?) versions of the same title, this volume differs by its red cover with a girl holding a bird (Aesopic?), its four colored illustrations by Weir, and its excellent prints of the illustrations. ...
(George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd., 1921)
Most similar in items like cover and title page to my Coker edition (1930) of Fry's work. This edition at last gives me a date with which to anchor the first edition of this book. Unfortunately three of the eight colored ...
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.
Learning for Life: Aesop's Fables Part 1
(Reader's World, 1999)
This is an energetic large-format pamphlet 24 pages long and presenting five fables. Part 1 of four parts. The fables presented are FG, DS, LM, BW, and Chanticleer. The plunge of the dog into the water in DS on 9 is well done.
Aesop's Fables: The Horse and the Donkey and other stories
(Dreamland Publications, 1997)
This is an 8½ x 11 presentation of seven fables. The Horse and the Donkey does not involve the loading onto the horse's back of either the dead donkey or his skin. Only his burdens are transferred. GA has for a moral: ...
Animal Fables from Aesop
(David R. Godine, 2000)
Here is a fine paperback version of the original 1991 hardbound version, also done by Godine. Let me repeat my comments there, except to say that I had complained about the hardback cost. Now the paperback cost is less ...
Aesop's Fables in English & Latin, Interlineary, for the Benefit of those who not having a Master, Would Learn Either of these Tongues
(A.and J. Churchil/Kessinger Publishing, 1703)
I closed my remark on my original copy of this book with this comment: I wonder why no one has ever reprinted this book. Here is my answer. This copy, manufactured at request, provides a good supplement to the original ...
