More Fables of Aesop
(Parents' Magazine Press, 1974)
The sequel to the earlier Jack Kent's Fables of Aesop (1972). Just a wonderful book! Almost every story and illustration could be well used in a lecture. My favorite is The Cat and Venus. There is real wit in the ...
Fables choisies de La Fontaine
Black-and-white illustrations and colored pictures are intermixed. The best among them are of the lap-donkey, FM, the crow with plumes, and MSA. AI at the beginning. A lovely treasure in the French tradition. See Fables ...
mes nouvelles fables de la Fontaine
(Librairie Fernand Nathan et Cie, 1974)
The pictures are cute. The La Fontaine text is the original verse. I see nothing for use. Of course, it is an example of the perduring tradition of LaFontaine. Fables presented here include TH, MM, The Little Fish and ...
Animal Land: The Creatures of Children's Fiction.
(Avon Books, 1977)
Nicely opinionated as the cover quotation from the Christian Science Monitor proclaims. The first chapter deals extensively with Aesop and places fables between folklore and romance in genetic history. The view of ...
A Selection of Aesop's Fables
(Castle Book Murray Group of Companies,Castle Books: Murray, 1952?)
This book is the same as the previous book, except that the pictures are all done in black-and-white. This book has the rare distinction of separating the two pages of T of C to put in between a page containing only ...
A Manual of Aesopic Fable Literature
(Lenox Hill: Burt Franklin, 1896)
Painstaking Germanic documentation of the incunabula, with notations on who has seen the editions. Apparently the introduction to a lengthy second Manual that probably never appeared.
A first book of Aesop's Fables
(Ladybird Books, 1974)
A small version--with twelve fables--of the later Ladybird large-format book Aesop's Fables (1975). It looks like the illustrations are the same. WL is here but not in the larger-format book.
A second book of Aesop's Fables
A small version--with twelve fables--of the later Ladybird large-format book Aesop's Fables (1975). It looks like the illustrations are the same. The Wolves and the Dogs is here but not in the larger-format book.
The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse: An Aesop Fable.
(Rand McNally, 1973)
Large and inexpensive kids' book in big format with simple and sentimental pictures. I do not see much here to use.
The Three Bears & 15 other stories
(Thomas Y. Crowell, 1975)
This may be my oldest copy of this book. The obverse of the title-page offers a printing history that makes this book a first printing. It has a bookplate with Leah on its first blank page and some scribbling facing the ...
