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 ...
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 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 History and Fables of Aesop
(Scolar Press, 1484)
A wonderfully reproduced book. The text can use the help of Jacobs' later reprinting. The 186 woodcuts (many for the life of Esope ) have their own charm but are distinctly inferior to the Ulm woodcuts from which they ...
(Avenel Books: Crown Publishing Co., 1912)
T of C and list of illustrations. Many fables! The T of C goes on at length! The black-and-white illustrations are well done, but the colored are not well presented here. They look a bit drab.
More Aesop's Fables
(Peter Haddock, Ltd., 1975?)
The sequel to Aesop's Fables (1975?). The price is marked in British currency. This book features rather long (eight-page) renditions of the fables, sometimes with expressive faces. The best might be GA. I have come ...
A nice source. Do not miss the index of illustrations at the back. The text seems to be exactly the same as Hausrath and Perry.
Aesop's Fables (Well Loved Tales)
(Book Essentials, 1975?)
A good example of mostly bad art, bad tellings, and even bad orthography. The best of the tales might be The King of the Animals. An example of a story poorly told is The Wild Goats.
Bennett's Fables from Aesop and Others
(Viking Press, 1857)
Lively and delightful illustrations, here reproduced vividly. If there is a problem with Bennett's wonderful pictures, it is that the social commentary is so pointed that we lose or miss something as we view them in a ...
