(M.A. Donohue & Co., 1895?)
This book compares most closely with my 1896 Aesop's Fables from Donohue, Henneberry, and Company. See my comments there. This book has a strange first page with four rabbits around a cartoon of grandpa kicking a football. ...
Aesop's Fables (Well Loved Tales)
(Peter Haddock, Ltd., 1975?)
Perhaps a better copy than the reproduction done by Book Essentials, which I have listed under the same year. See my comments there. This copy has the British price marked on the corner of the end-paper.
The Aesop for Children
(Rand McNally, 1919)
A green covered book with 146 fables on 112 pages. All the illustrations are colored. Patience has yielded four copies of the first printing. One copy, from Constant Reader, is in excellent conditiion. This copy was ...
Three Aesop Fox Fables
(Clarion Books: Houghton Mifflin, 1971)
I immediately presumed that this book was a copy of one I already had. It turns out that I have several copies of the Weekly Reader printing and a paperback of this version but never had this hardbound source for the ...
You Read to Me, I'll Read to You: Very Short Fables to Read Together
(Little, Brown and Company, 2010)
Here is an extra copy of this book with its dust-jacket. The format of this book uses colors to indicate alternating readers within its thirteen fables. As the introduction proclaims, "You take one voice, I, the other; ...
(Golden Press: Western Publishing, 1965)
Here is a special distribution of a favorite book. The book is included in Scott, Foresman's Invitations to Personal Reading Program. That specification is noted on the book's cover, its title-page, and the verso of the ...
The Baby's Own Aesop
(Frederick Warne and Co., 1887)
I went crazy when I first found this! Now see my comments on the more original Routledge edition of the same year. Copy A for $60 from Laurie in November of 1992 is in better condition. Copy B for $40 from Green Apple ...
Aesop In the Afternoon
(Citation Press, 1972)
A surprise find of a book I have sought for several years. Cullum presents the fables as dramas for teachers to use in less heady afternoon sessions of school. The fables, told traditionally, are divided according to the ...
The Medici Aesop
(Harry N. Abrams, 1488?)
What a treasure! A good introduction gives a concise history of Aesop, the text of the fables, and the illustrations. This hand-written and hand-painted manuscript was done from a printed book, Bono Accurzio's 1480 version ...
(Picture Book Studio, 1989)
Another victory for Neugebauer. A wonderful book. Zwerger's twelve ink-and-wash illustrations are witty and delightful. The best illustration features the camel dancing and the animals laughing. Other good illustrations ...
